Welcome to Greater Than, Cason United Methodist's monthly podcast that features community leaders and non-profit discussing important issues and events of the day: faith, social justice, community services and more.

We're happy to be joined on our inaugural episode by Melanie Afanador, the Outreach Services Director for Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, or more commonly known as AVDA. AVDA has been working in the South Palm Beach County community for over 35 years to prevent domestic violence thought education, advocacy and intervention.

Melanie has dedicated her career to empowering survivors of domestic violence and working collaboratively with community agencies to create safer outcomes for families. Since 2006, she has worked in shelter and outreach programs to provide survivors with support, resources, safety planning and crisis-intervention throughout south Florida.
