Any gift, no matter the size, will make a difference. Can you help us?
2020 posed unforeseen challenges for us all. But here in Philadelphia, homicides increased by 40% in 2020, making it the deadliest year in decades. These homicides, which include those of Mr. Walter Wallace, Jr. and many other beloved members of the community we serve, have been outright heartbreaking, painful, infuriating, and traumatizing, reopening wounds for many. Our free services are urgently needed, but we are a small organization and need help to meet the needs of grieving parents, children, and families this holiday season.
As we embark on a new year, we are seeking to expand our capacity and better meet the increased need for free and accessible trauma therapy in Philadelphia. Because now more than ever our community needs AVP's services.
