Welcome to ATVP

As essential workers, we have continued to meet the needs survivors. Last year we assisted over 828 individuals (an increase of 20% over the previous year) and provided 117 prevention programs with a special focus on youth programming.  Our hotline continues to respond to immediate calls for help, 24/7.

Our services are more critical than ever, and we invite you to support ATVP’s mission.

We are sustained in our mission by the generous support of our community and the kindness of people like you. Thank you.

“ATVP was there for me and my kids at the scariest time of my life. I was completely terrified to leave and knew my husband would try to find us and hurt me if I left. ATVP provided safe shelter, lots of resources, and support so I could make my own choices and start a new life chapter. They were absolutely amazing and so kind to me and my children. Without ATVP, I don’t know what I would have done, where I would have gone or if I’d be alive. I am forever grateful to ATVP.”
