Comments about “AVDA (AID TO VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE)

  • AVDA is such a great organization – they’re really making a difference for women and children affected by domestic violence. When I volunteered, I helped by inputting survey results and collecting donor information, so you can expect to be doing office work.
