Hi Leanne,

Every single day in Summit County, lives are forever changed by acts of violence and crime. The profound ripple effect extends beyond the individual, leaving families shattered and communities in despair. 

At VAP, we understand the complexity of these experiences and the urgent need for support. Our mission is to stand beside each person affected by crisis, violence, and tragedy, providing a steady hand of compassion in their darkest hours. That’s why our team is dedicated to always being just one phone call away; ready to offer the help and guidance needed to navigate the road from hardship to healing. 

This work that we’re able to do, the lives we’re able to impact, are only possible because of you. Thank you for your continued support, which acts as a source of hope for those who are hurting. 

As you read this month’s Advocate, we hope you are reminded of the vital role you play in our mission. Your support is the foundation by which we are able to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Yours Truly,

Leanne Graham
