Volunteers are the heart of this program; we could not operate without them. Volunteer recruitment is consistent and there is a desperate need for additional volunteers.
Our agency is a funded by State and Federal Grants, as well as by the City. Grant funding is limited and we have experienced several cuts, as have many agencies in funding due to our current economic situation. Any financial donations on behalf of you or your organization will assist by funding various emergency victim needs such as emergency temporary shelter, food, clothing, transportation, re-key victim locks and any other necessary cost to the program in which grant funds will not cover. If you or your organization can be of assistance with volunteers or donations, or if you would simply like further information about our program, please contact the Crime Victim Services Coordinator, Angelina Johnson at 928-763-9400 ext. 319.
