Donors to Diversity Thrift do more than help us make money to put back into the community. They also enable us to share donated items with other nonprofits that are in need of goods such as furniture.
One such organization that benefitted recently is the Virginia Anti-Violence Project (VAVP.) The organization works to address and prevent violence in diverse LGBTQ communities across Virginia. Thanks to a new grant, VAVP now includes therapy for LGBTQ+ identified people that have been impacted by intimate partner/dating/sexual violence and/or hate/bias motivated harassment. These mental health services will be offered free of charge by Chevelle Moss Savage, LPC. Such services are a deeply felt need and VAVP is now addressing the lack of help by providing in-person and video conference therapy.
Diversity Richmond is proud to support the good work of VAVP and was delighted to recently deliver chairs, tables and lamps that will be used in the counseling offices.
For more information about VAVP, email or call (804) 925-9242.
