Advocacy for Victims of Abuse


There is an epidemic that impacts one in four women and one in eight men and crosses all racial, social, educational, economic and religious lines. It is abuse. AVA – Advocacy for Victims of Abuse is focusing the light of Christ on this dark tragedy. AVA is the call to the whole church to advocate for victims of abuse. Through our partnership together, AVA will, by God’s grace, equip the Hope Covenant Church to bring the healing touch of Jesus into this needy area.

AVA’s goals are to:

  • Provide awareness and educational seminars. 
  • Promote training opportunities.
  • Procure appropriate resources for men and women, teens, and children.
