Change the outcome for a survivor…

We at PAVE believe that community education is the key to violence prevention. We also understand that when prevention is not enough, survivors need timely, concrete support services. This is why our shelter and crisis hotline remained fully functioning throughout the COVID pandemic.

Our ability to offer a diverse range of prevention and support services rests on the support of donors like you.

Warm the Children applications are now closed.

Featuring a virtual play, discussion panel, and wine, it was a wonderful evening of empowerment for all those who attended. Thank you to those who supported & to those who participated in our panel!
