Ways To Give

There are many ways to get involved with Atlanta Victim Assistance, Inc., from volunteering and donating to attending our events and spreading the word. Contact us today to find out how you can join our community to help make a difference.

The Georgia Crime Victims Bill of Rights is enacted to recognize victims’ basic rights and to require the city of Atlanta to commit resources to address crime victims’ needs. As a result, Atlanta’s first  Victim Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) is established, which later becomes Atlanta Victim Assistance, Inc. (AVA). To achieve its mission, the organization establishes strong partnerships with the Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Municipal Court.

AVA's Closet

In recognition of the profound impact of crime, Atlanta Victim Assistance (AVA) understands that victims often find themselves with limited resources. Some have been forced to leave their homes or have lost access to their personal belongings. To address this critical need, we have launched AVA's Closet—an initiative dedicated to providing essential items like clothing and toiletries to those in need. Through AVA's Closet, we aim to offer vital support and help restore a sense of stability and dignity to victims affected by crime.
