Latinos in Virginia Empowerment Center is the first and only agency in the state of Virginia that provides culturally specific services for Hispanic/Latino families affected by violence, which can ensure that all of its programs and services are always delivered by bilingual, bicultural, and trained in trauma.
The LIVE center is committed to transforming the entire Latino community to improve the way violence issues are addressed. That's why, in addition to our Victim and Survivor Advocacy program, we focus on creating community partnerships.
