Colorado Gives 2019

Colorado Gives Day is December 10th, 2019. Since 1987, The Arkansas Valley Resource Center (AVRC) has been providing services to women and children who have been victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. In 1996, those services were extended to serve all victims of all violent crimes in the 16th Judicial District (Bent, Crowley, and Otero Counties). AVRC relies in part on public and community donations to continue these services. Every donation counts toward in-kind funds, and can also provide victims of violent crime with the things they need to survive and move forward from their victimization.

Your donations are absolutely INVALUABLE!
