Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia

On July 3, 2023, a mass shooting took place in the Kingsessing neighborhood of Southwest Philadelphia. If you or anyone you know were a victim (either direct or indirect), witnessed, or heard the gun shots of the shootings that occurred in the Kingsessing neighborhood at the 1600 block of S. 56th Street, Kingsessing Avenue, Frazier Street, or Springfield Avenue, you have rights and may eligible to certain benefits. We can assist and support you during this difficult time.

From court advocacy to counseling and therapy, our team of professional victim advocates, counselors, and therapists -many of whom know the pain and grief caused by violence and victimization- are here to support you in your healing journeys.
