Long Descriptions

Just two years ago, my baby brother Joseph was shot. At that time, I had no idea that I needed help, or that my family needed help. If you are a victim of crime, seek help, because help is there for you.

Volunteering doesn't require special skills, just special people. The thing about volunteering is, there's a job for everyone. Whether you hold a hand, make a phone call, or stuff an envelope, every job has a positive impact on a victim. Angela: Rape Center Volunteer (back to For Volunteers )

August 9th, 1999, I was raped. I felt dirty, and I lost sense of security. Victim assistance helped me with counseling. They helped me write a victim impact statement, and because of that my rapist got 20 years. Nobuko: Photographer, Rape Survivor (back to For Providers )

30 de noviembre de 2002, me chocó un conductor ebrio. Perdí mis dos piernas, pero volveré a bailar salsa. Maria: Madre, víctima de conductor ebrio (back to En Español)

Whether you're a crime victim in need of assistance, an individual looking for volunteer opportunities, or a service provider searching for more resources,, is the place to go. (back to About the PSAs)
