Our Story

Our Mission Statement:
KAVAC is committed to eradicating partner abuse and sexual violence and building safer communities.

Our volunteer organization started initially in 2008. In 2015, we changed the name to better reflect who we are: Kingston Anti-Violence Advisory Council (KAVAC).

KAVAC works with agencies and organizations interested in improving services for victims and survivors of sexual violence and partner abuse. The Council is particularly interested in increasing awareness and understanding of victims’ experiences and needs among service providers, exploring new ways to improve and enhance services through interagency collaboration.
