Violence Prevention Avalon East is an alliance of community and government agencies dedicated to ending violence in our homes and communities. As an equality-seeking organization whose mandate is to address violence at its roots, we educate and advocate, increase awareness around the issues of violence, and lobby for enhanced services in the prevention and early intervention of violence.

A group for change, our organization brings together diverse perspectives to facilitate a crucial dialogue between government and community concerning policies, strategies, and front-line responses.

Our agency spans the Eastern Avalon region of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and is one of ten throughout the province working in partnership with the Violence Prevention Initiative, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
