Program (AVAP) Member
AmeriCorps Victim Assistance Program (AVAP) members provide crisis intervention, direct support services, and advocacy to individuals and families who have been impacted by domestic and sexual violence and stalking, addressing critical needs of communities throughout New Hampshire. Members receive training from experts in the field on crucial topics such as; creating access to housing, financial literacy, advocacy, and many other skill sets that transfer into numerous career fields. As financial abuse is present in 98% of relationships involving domestic violence and presents a significant barrier to leaving an abuser, members integrate economic empowerment into their advocacy by providing financial literacy and housing services.
