Welcome to ATVP: About Us

At Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse our mission is to empower individuals affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse, and stalking. We work to create a safe and equitable community through education and prevention.

Our agency was formally organized by a concerned group of community citizens in 1980. 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.

For more information about the work we do, please take a moment to review our Annual Report for the fiscal year ending June 2023.

“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.”

ATVP is a participating member of the Moscow and Pullman United Ways.
