Working Against Violence for Everyone

WAVE exists to support and provide advocacy for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and promote relationships without abuse in the greater Petersburg community.


We believe that violence is an unacceptable way to deal with problems and that people have the right to be free from violence in their homes. We believe there should be a place where anyone, regardless of sex, age, race, or sexual orientation, can go to be safe and explore their options.

Advocacy and Prevention are two pillars of our organization's mission to create safer, healthier communities.


In Advocacy, we prioritize the well-being of individuals affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, offering compassionate support and empowerment. Our dedicated team provides a safe space where survivors can access guidance and resources to navigate their journey towards healing and justice. Our 24/7 crisis line ensures that support is available whenever it's needed most.

In Prevention, we focus on equipping individuals and communities with the tools to proactively address and prevent abuse. Through engaging school education talks on personal safety and other relevant topics, we empower individuals of all ages to navigate the world with confidence and awareness. Our acclaimed Stewards of Children training program further empowers adults with the skills and knowledge to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. Additionally, our Unity Club initiatives, led by passionate middle schoolers, promote unity and awareness within schools, fostering a culture of support and respect.

Together, our Advocacy and Prevention services work hand in hand to build a future where every individual can thrive in safety and dignity.
