For 36 years, Atlanta Victim Assistance (AVA) has been serving victims of crime who are residents or visitors in the City of Atlanta. Since our founding in 1984, we have assisted nearly 130,000 victims of crime by advocating for their fundamental rights with compassion, dignity, and respect to help them find healing and justice.

In 2020, we witnessed triple crises such as a pandemic, economic recession, and social unrest as a result of protests against racism. Throughout this tumultuous era, AVA has remained steadfast and vigilant in its commitment to stand by victims of crime to help them find peace and healing. AVA’s dedicated advocates provided 38,858 services and advocacy for 6,947 victims this year—the largest number of individuals AVA has ever served throughout the history of our organization. We are more committed than ever to continuing this important work in 2021 and beyond. 

Although COVID-19 has made providing services riskier, AVA continues to offer healing and tools that help victims overcome traumatic experiences.
