This year Crime Victims United (CVU) celebrated its 31st year dedicated to protecting the rights of survivors of crime, their families and safety in their communities. 2020 was a particularly challenging year financially, as all but one of CVU fundraising events has been canceled or postponed to 2021. Our NonProfit organization relies entirely on donations and the generosity of our supporters.
In the face of the pandemic CVU launched a Virtual Resource Clinic and podcast series designed to provide survivors with resources from their homes. We are pleased to have awarded a college scholarship to a survivor of the Harvest Music Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas. Our Victim Compensation program has expanded to serve more crime survivors and we partnered with the Auburn Police Department to provide Survivor Support Bags for adults as well as children.
All of this could not have happened without your help.
