In 1980, Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse(ATVP) was formally organized by a concerned group of community citizens . We continue to provide support and safety for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and non-offending family members and friends. ATVP is a private, non-profit organization governed by a community-based Board of Directors.
ATVP services are provided to program participants free of charge and without discrimination on the basis of physical or mental disability, race, ethnicity, color, religion, political beliefs, gender, age, national origin, citizenship, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital or familial status, pregnancy, income, veteran status, because the individual is a recipient of federal, state, or local assistance, or any other basis prohibited by federal, state or local law.
Services include 24-hour telephone or in-person crisis intervention; emergency, confidential shelter; legal and medical advocacy; individual and group support; information and referral; and community education.
