Q: How many people has ATVP helped?
AskAnAdvocate: Since our founding in 1980, ATVP has stayed incredibly busy. Thanks to the advent of affordable personal computing power (and grants for technology), we've kept pretty good records for the last decade or so. From 2005 to 2015, ATVP was able to work with over 3,600 individuals and their families on an on-going basis, in addition to fielding over 30,000 calls on our hotlines.
Once you factor in our prevention and presentation work - and we did over 560 presentations and outreaches last year alone - the straight forward answer is somewhere between "a lot" and "a whole lot."
Despite all of our continued efforts, we always need more volunteers and more community allies to help hold the people causing harm accountable.
