  • Have you ever been involved in direct mail or fundraising activities?
  • Seeking Translators (Spanish & Russian) needed for translation of agency information flyers.
  • Volunteer Advocates for advocacy-based, individual and group supportive counseling
  • Assist in coverage for the agency's booth during community outreach events
  • Facilitators for AAFV's Self-Esteem Building Program
  • Volunteer a trade service.  Currently, seeking community volunteer members for AAFV's  Self-Esteem Building Program  (beauticians, karate instructors, manicurists, photo printshop location and beauty salon location)

  • Does your employer use a printing company that might be willing to print AAFV's education and outreach material pro-bono in return for your business? Printing represents one of our largest program and administrative expenses!

We will be thrilled to hear from you!

Make a Donation

Like many charitable organizations, AAFV depends upon the community for its growth and success. Volunteers aid in training, help with mailing out fliers, and assist at various functions. We also depend upon the Government for different cash grants and gifts available to organizations like ourselves. Cash and gift donations are often passed on through community groups and sometimes other charitable groups.

If you, or your groups representative, would like to assist AAFV in any way we would love the help. Cash and gift donations can have pickups arranged by any of our staff, please Contact Us and we will make arangements to meet with you.

The AAFV's Advocate Team Thanks You!
