 Advocates Against Family Violence

Caldwell, Idaho
The mission of AAFV is to eliminate violence in the lives of individuals. "Through restoring hope, encouraging healing and helping those we serve discover their true strength, this bold mission statement is doable!" While staying at the shelter, survivors are able to take part in many different educational courses that focus on healthy relationships and life skills.
