Hi Leanne,


“My daughter was choked by her father,” are the words one of our Victim Advocate’s heard on the other line, as she spoke with a crying mother who feared for the safety of her two daughters. We were able to respond immediately with compassion, support and next steps, to ensure this woman and her daughters received the justice and protection they desperately needed. 


Support for this family and thousands of others is only made possible because of you! Thank you for partnering with us to provide essential services to victims and their families in need. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of so many in our community. 


As you read this newsletter, I hope you will be reminded of the impact your support has made and will continue to make in the months to come. Remember, in someone’s darkest moment, your generosity and kindness helps provide the necessary help and hope for them to move forward. 


Yours Truly,


Leanne Graham

President/CEO

To reach out to victims in need, we have created a new program called, B.A.R. (Bartender Advocate Response) Outreach Program. This program was designed to empower bartenders, servers, and staff to identify types of victimizations and to recognize needs of those who drink, dine or work at their establishments.
