AVDA is working to end family violence…

Only AVDA works to break this cycle by intervening with both the victim and the abuser. AVDA operates two direct-service programs unique to Harris County. The Legal Advocacy Program offers freelegal representation for adults and children trapped in abusive intimate-partner or family relationships and the nationally recognized Battering Intervention and Prevention Program provides specialized psycho-educational counseling which enables batterers to recognize, accept responsibility for and end their abusive behavior.
