Employment Opportunities with ATV:

  • Executive Director - Click here for info and to apply online.

It is hard to imagine that:

  • Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten
  • 1 in 3 women have been physically abused by an intimate partner
  • 1 in 4 men have been physically abused by an intimate partner

It is even harder to imagine that most cases of domestic abuse go unreported. Raising funds to continue to provide services to victims is a challenge that we embrace as our responsibility and we need your help to do it. 

Gaining stability after making the brave decision to escape the abuse in one’s own home creates even more challenges for the individual and ATV helps that victim address those challenges head on. With the addition of our SafeHouse we provide a continuum of care by giving the victim of domestic violence or sexual assault the option to leave the abuse rather than continuing to endure it. Accessing counseling and advocacy services for those impacted by violence is just the beginning of the uphill battle faced by victims of violence.  Finding safe housing to shield them from continued abuse is daunting but with the SafeHouse we are able to do just that.

We didn't quite reach our intended goal of $20,000 but with your help, we made a dent. Should you have any questions or like a tour of our newly renovated SafeHouse please do not hesitate to call us: 970-669-5150.


Please see the video produced by Starstream Productions to learn more about ATV and those we serve:


ATV raised nearly a million dollars to acquire and renovate an 8 bedroom house (22 beds) but operating funds are still needed.

You can help in many ways, just go to our donation page and make an online donation, call 970-669-5150 or mail your check to 541 E. 8th St. Loveland, CO 80537

THE IMPACT OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

Nearly 1 in 5 women and 1 in 71 men are victims of rape (Black et al., 2011). But all of us are impacted by sexual violence. That’s because sexual violence affects communities and society — in addition to survivors and their loved ones. Because of this, it’s on all of us to help prevent it. Click here to see full text.

  • Impact on survivors
  • Impact on loved ones
  • Impact on communities
  • Impact on society

Help is available. Local sexual assault centers can provide help. In crisis situations, contact 1-800-656-4673. For more information, visit the National Sexual Violence Resource Center website.

If you or someone you know has been abused, please call our 24 hour crisis line at  970-880-1000 or the office at 970-669-5150.
