VSC Voice | January 2021

I am writing today to tell you how much I love VSC and why I’ve chosen to be involved as a board member for 8 years. As a survivor myself, I appreciate the meaningful work VSC does for people in our community. VSC provides counseling, support groups, and advocacy for victims of crime and their loved ones, as well as accompaniment for some of the most difficult things survivors face like court hearings and sexual assault forensic exams. Thanks to VSC, no victim of crime has to walk alone.

In a time where many Montgomery County residents are facing eviction, unemployment, and loss of health insurance, I am proud that VSC provides all services at no cost to survivors and their loved ones.  
Being part of this work as a board member and now board president is deeply rewarding to me and supporting VSC with my time and talents is how I pay it forward. If you would like to join me in supporting VSC’s work, please feel free to make a gift or consider becoming a volunteer.
With warm wishes for a happy and healthy 2021,

Elizabeth Cannon, M. Ed.
