Mission Statement

AVDA's mission is to work to end violence in families by advocating for the safety and self-determination of battered people, promoting accountability for those who batter, and fostering a coordinated community response to domestic violence.

Description

Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA) is a private non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization founded in 1980 by the National Counsil of Jewish Women in Greater Houston. In efforts to aid a battered woman who had little access to information on legal rights or the services of an attorney, they formed an organization to serve as an adjunct to local women's centers and to function as a resource to other battered women who had nowhere to go.

Since then, AVDA has provided advocacy, safety planning, and legal representation to over 60,000 victims of domestic abuse while also offering intervention services to over 10,000 domestic violence perpetrators.
