Avalon Center was recently awarded a competitive three-year $475,000 Transitional Housing grant by the U.S. Department of Justice through the Office of Violence Against Women. Avalon was one of 68 projects in the nation to receive the award.
Avalon Center works to end domestic and sexual violence by breaking the cycle of abuse through prevention, education, shelter and support services in the Williamsburg and Middle Peninsula areas.
The “Next Step” project will provide community-based transitional housing for survivors of domestic or sexual violence, dating violence or stalking. The housing assistance will be available for a minimum of six months and up to two years for survivors living in the communities served by Avalon Center.
