Building LGBTQ power to create safety in the Bay Area since 1979! // Desarrollando el poder LGBTQ para crear seguridad en el Area de la Bahia desde 1979!
We support the wellness of predominantly low- and no-income LGBTQ people surviving violence or abuse. We build the leadership of LGBTQ people and our allies to create safer lives.We organize our communities to address the root causes of violence.
What We Do:
PEER ADVOCACY COUNSELING
Advocacy-Based Peer Counseling: LGBTQ people dealing with violence or abuse can access short-term counseling to receive emotional support, safety planning, referrals, and limited case follow-up.
If you are an LGBTQ person dealing with violence or abuse, call to schedule an appointment at (415) 333-HELP (4357) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If no one answers, please leave a voicemail with a call back number.
1:1 Peer Advocacy Counseling will only be provided via phone or through zoom, per the CDC recommendations for avoiding exposure of our communities to the CoVid-19 virus.
SURVIVORS ADVOCATING FOR FREEDOM TODAY (SAF-T)
CUAV's membership program fosters a membership base in order to develop the leadership and capacity of LGBTQI survivors of violence to break isolation, increase community connections and create systemic change toward the larger goals of decreasing deportation, homelessness and incarceration rates.

TAKE CARE TUESDAYS
Take Care Tuesday (formerly known as Wellness Wednesday) is currently on pause due to temporary office closure to prevent the spread of the covid 19 virus.
We know that this collective trauma has a deep impact on all levels and may trigger uncomfortable responses. As survivors, there are many ways that trusting your intuition has been essential for survival.
Through our social media platforms, we will offer simple practices to reconnect back to that inner wisdom. Please stay tuned for our virtual Take Care Tuesday! This group will be open to all LGBTQI+ survivors after an intake. Please sign up here or contact Healing Justice Program Manager at email@example.com .
