AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) Launches #EndAbuse Social Media Campaign to Increase Awareness of Domestic Violence and Resources Available to the Victims.

On May 27, 2015, AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), a Houston-based non-profit that provides life-saving services to victims of abuse and their families, will launch its first-ever social media campaign – #EndAbuse.

The campaign’s goal is to increase awareness of the issue of domestic violence in Houston and to inform victims of domestic violence as well as the public about AVDA’s services that are available to help victims, their families and the abusers.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in three women and one in four men in the United States have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. The Texas Department of Health Services and the 2014-2015 Harris County Community Plan reports that more than 250,000 Harris County women are in domestic violence situations.Post to Twitter and Facebook.
