Our Story

AAFV works to eliminate violence in families and homes by empowering individuals to make positive life choices through advocacy, support, education, affordable housing, awareness, and community involvement. For victims of sexual assault and domestic abuse, hope can often seem too far out of reach. AAFV exists not to ask “why” or “how” of our victims, but simply to put hope within reach. AAFV has been providing services to victims of domestic violence in Canyon County and the surrounding Treasure Valley for over 15 years. AAFV provides victim advocacy, shelter, and victim services to individuals affected by the following; Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Human Trafficking, Dating Violence, Physical Violence, Child Abuse, Stalking, Mental Abuse, Financial Abuse. AAFV provided 61,227 program services to individuals seeking help in 2017. Our shelter is a 16,000+ sq. ft. facility, with 28 rooms (96 beds), offering emergency housing for women and children who must choose between being homeless or staying in a home with violence and abuse. AAFV owns fourteen low-income rental housing units providing permanent housing to those served. HOPE Plaza, provides for a 48-unit apartment complex meeting local affordable-housing needs and providing additional housing opportunities for victims leaving our shelter.
