Jennie Needles Memorial Fresh Start Fund

The mission of the Fresh Start Fund is to assist AVV participants with critical needs related to establishing a “fresh start” free from violence. Examples include legal fees and purchase of items to set up a new home. Resources of this fund are available to Advocates for Victims of Violence, Inc. clients. Up to $500 can be allocated per participant. Fund will be managed by the Executive Director of AVV.

A generous memorial donation by the family of Jennie Needles, a long time Valdez resident that supported the work of AVV was designed as seed money to establish this fund. Donations to this fund will be accepted and used to continue meeting critical needs of AVV clients.
