BENEFITING: Texas Advocacy Project Inc
Established in 1982, Texas Advocacy Project (The "Project") is a nonprofit, legal organization with a mission to prevent domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking throughout Texas through free legal services, access to the justice system, and education. Our attorneys, staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors are committed to advancing our vision that all Texans live safely in hope, not fear. We are the ONLY statewide organization in Texas devoted exclusively to providing legal solutions to these victims. Through our partnerships with 96 domestic violence and sexual assault service agencies, we help our clients obtain court orders--including access to financial resources like child support, equity in the marital estate, and crime victim compensation funds--that are a critical step in permanently breaking the cycle of violence.
