Some services we provide: 24 Crisis Line, Emergency Shelter, Police Response Advocacy, Court Advocacy, Sexual Assault Advocacy, Child Forensic Interviews, food, clothing, transitional housing, support groups, and outreach services to the community.

The mission of the Alliance Against Family Violence (AAFV) is to offer programs which provide safety and security for members of the communities in which we serve. While we provide services for all, we are especially dedicated to those who are most vulnerable in our society. The AAFV is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to facilitating and empowering positive change in the lives of those affected by domestic and sexual violence, child abuse and neglect.

Our goal is to raise awareness about family violence, community resources, and AAFV programs.
