In a shocking statistic, an estimated one out of every four women in the United States will experience some form of domestic abuse in their lifetime. Domestic abuse may also occur at the hands of a female abuser, and in same-sex relationships. While many instances of intimate partner violence involve individuals in a dating relationship, many of these millions of cases nationwide are spousal related in marital or common-law relationships. AVDA’s Houston domestic spousal violence prevention outreach strives to not only prevent spousal violence from occurring, but also to provide aid to all of those who have fallen victim to domestic spousal abuse.
