The mission of the Anti-Violence Partnership of Philadelphia (AVP) is to reduce the entire cycle of violence by providing a wide range of services from support and counseling for victims and their families to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of violence. They provide comprehensive and collaborative programs throughout Philadelphia in schools, social service agencies, the courts, and at community sites.

AVP serves victims of violent crime and individuals who have lost a loved one to homicide (often called “co-victims”). AVP offers several programs and services to our clients. All services are provided free of charge.
