AVP Development in Antelope Valley

Early Years

AVP - Antelope Valley was founded in 2005 by Rossie Johnson, Diana Couch and Doug Couch to provide workshops in Lancaster, Palmdale, and the surrounding area, in association with AVP-California and AVP-USA, Inc. Early workshops in Antelope Valley included those facilitated in a private home, in facilities on church property, in nonprofit buildings such as the Boys and Girls Club, and in facilities part of St. Joseph Manor's home for single mothers. AVP-Antelope Valley participated with Maxine Shiltz and Linda Vasquez in the early work of this project, both of whom helped promote AVP workshops and provided facilities. Gradually, we worked with individuals in the Greater Los Angeles Area, notably Judy Walker, and as far away as San Luis Rey, as well as with other AVP groups in Santa Monica, Pasadena and Claremont, and Mike Stapleton from Tucson, Arizona.

Our local AVP-Antelope Valley group supports both community and prison workshops.  We are currently supporting AVP Workshops at CCI-Tehachapi, CAC-California City and LAC-Lancaster prisons.  We train you to become a volunteer and facilitate these 22-hour workshops.  The process is to take a Basic, Advanced and Training for Facilitators (3 weekend workshops).  Gate Clearance request must be submitted and approved to work in the prisons.  This can take up to two months to be approved.
