Thank you to our donors!

Each month, CRCVC staff supports victims in their healing and recovery.  We do so over the telephone, through email and in person.  We provide information and resources to help them navigate the criminal justice system and write to government officials to express victims’ needs and concerns.  We are grateful to our donors for supporting the work we do everyday, and wanted to share with you what we’ve been up to:
