Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse (ATVP) is a local organization that provides people in need and their families with shelter to protect them from the possible sexual assault/abuse, domestic violence, stalking and any other forms of scary and life threatening harassment. They provide the families of people threatened by these types of violent acts a safe space to be in, and also offer outreach through educational conversations on awareness and prevention of these abuses to local communities and to individuals.  Feel free to check out their website for more information.
