AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse)
Easter Offering 2019
St. Luke’s 2019 Easter Offering will support AVDA in the fight of domestic abuse.
One in every four women in this country experiences domestic abuse in her lifetime. Unfortunately, domestic violence is all around us; it knows no boundaries and no prejudices. It is found in our poorest neighborhoods and our wealthiest homes; it exists within every culture, religious group, and race. Although the majority of victims are women, men are abused, too.
The mission of the nonprofit organization AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) is to change this statistic and end family violence in the Greater Houston area. AVDA takes a holistic approach by advocating for the safety and self-determination of victims, promoting accountability for abusers, and fostering a community response to abuse.
Thank you for your generosity and Happy Easter!
