AVAP Saint Louis

The Mission of the Anti-Violence advocacy project is to provide education, advocacy, and services that addresses intimate partner violence and hate violence based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

AVAP began as a volunteer effort in the St. Louis Community that supports and advocates for policies and practices that promote equality, freedom and respect for the full range of sexual orientations and gender identifications and expressions. In 2010, ALIVE Inc, a domestic violence non-profit based in both St. Louis and Franklin County, absorbed the project and established AVAP as one of many programs addressing intimate partner violence in relationships and communities. ALIVE can provide many direct services to LGBTQ victims of intimate partner violence, including crisis intervention, safety planning “Nights of Safety” emergency shelter, adult and child counseling, court advocacy and referrals to other LGBTQ friendly organizations. In addition to direct services, AVAP of ALIVE can provide education services for any community and professional groups interested in learning more about intimate partner violence and/or hate crimes in the LGBTQ community. ALIVE works in partnership with the Crime Victim’s Advocacy Center (CVAC) to provide information and direct LGBTQ friendly services for hate crime victims. CVAC services include crisis intervention, adult and child counseling, providing information regarding victim’s legal rights, criminal justice guidance and assistance with filing for victim’s compensation. All AVAP services can be accessed through ALIVE’s 24-hour crisis line: (314) 993-2777 If you would like to help AVAP, volunteers are often needed in one or more of the following areas: -Assist and support AVAP's neighborhood outreach campaign -Table information at LGBTQ friendly fairs and events -Brochure and materials distribution -Social media help and support: Post our info on your FB and Twitter! -Assist with various special projects -Serve on the AVAP Advisory Committee Note of Caution: Information sent and received on our Facebook wall is not private!
