#OfferHope this holiday season!

  • Provided free, professional counseling to more than 500 victims of violent crime
  • Served more than 220 youth of color through our Youth Violence Outreach program
  • Performed a trauma-sensitive yoga series to connect survivors with their bodies, and create a community of support
  • Supported 2,400 victims of crime and loved ones through victim advocacy and court accompaniment
  • Engaged thousands of crime victims and their loved ones during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week
  • Conducted research in coordination with agencies across the city to improve Philadelphia’s response to homicide

These are just a few ways that AVP made a difference in 2019.

This holiday season, we are asking you to support this crucial work. With your help, we will raise $15,000 to support victims of crime in the city we call home.

In 2018, Philadelphia’s murder rate was 17% higher than that of New York City. Philadelphia also had more homicides than the entire metropolitan area of Washington D.C. Homicide in this city is a glaring issue, but we are not without hope.

Consider partnering with AVP this holiday season and offer hope to those in our city who have been affected by violence.

Partners can also choose to give back through AmazonSmile. Through this program, Amazon will donate a percentage of the cost of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to AVP – with no extra cost to you!

At AVP, we are so grateful for your generosity this holiday season. We send you our warmest holiday greetings and wish you a happy new year!
