AVDA’s Houston “working poor” domestic violence support program is unique in the Houston community, offering free legal representation to victims of domestic abuse who “fall through the gaps” in legal aid services. These individuals have income too high to allow access to traditional legal aid, yet don’t earn enough to afford quality legal care. AVDA offers low income domestic violence free legal support in Houston. We know that legal services can be expensive and may deter a victim from reaching out for help, so that is why we provide the people of Houston domestic violence free legal support. In addition to AVDA’s “working poor” program for those with moderate income, AVDA has an extensive team of staff attorneys who provide services to individuals with low and no income.
