As a supporter of Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) for close to 30 years I can say without any hesitation that FVPF is one of the most effective, well run and forward thinking organizations I have ever worked with. They have a staff that is smart, committed, innovative, and honest. They know how to collaborate and support others working in the field. An investment in FVPF is an investment in the entire field that is dedicated to ending violence against women and children.
