Our mission of empowering our community to restore lives impacted by crisis, violence, and tragedy would not be possible without an incredible team, including our Board of Directors, community partners, donors, staff, and volunteers. As a result, the theme for our 2017 Annual Report is One Team - One Mission . The key words used throughout the report represent our team values and purpose. Working together, we are making an impact and were able to provide assistance to over 6,000 individuals in 2017.

safe at home
Victim Assistance Program now offers Safe at Home Program assistance to victims of domestic violence, stalking, human trafficking, rape, or sexual battery by shielding their personal information from public record and providing them with a safe and secure way to participate in our democratic process.

Safe at Home is an address confidentiality program created by House Bill 359 to help program participants shield their address from public records. A victim or a member of a victim’s household can apply in person to take part in the program through Victim Assistance Program’s Certified Application Assistant. A parent or guardian may apply on behalf of a minor, incompetent, or ward; however, any other adult must visit an Application Assistant in person to apply. Questions? Contact us at 330.376.0040.
