Hi! We're a Philly-based nonprofit focusing on helping family members of victims of homicide. We also have therapists and counselors who visit schools and run groups. Our website is an old mess, but I'd love to specifically know what you'd change first and how. Thanks so much for your help!
I want to make sure people know we exist as a resource. Mainly, I'd love to raise that awareness and be seen as an option for people trying to cope with the loss of their loved ones.
The Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia (AVP) is the only organization in Philadelphia whose mission is to reduce the entire cycle of violence by providing intervention, prevention, and support programs.
AVP was founded 30 years ago as a support group for families who had lost a loved one to murder. AVP's original program, Families of Murder Victims (FMV), quickly became a valuable support for co-victims of homicide by offering court accompaniment, advocacy and support.
