April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The goal is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities on how to prevent it. 

Our agency has several events throughout the month to raise this awareness on a local level here in Chester County.

Check out our upcoming events and follow us on social media throughout the month for ways that you can help.
Giving Campaign Update
CVC 's Help Give Victims Hope Campaign launched in November 2017 and has received more than $41,000 to date.

Please help us to keep that total climbing! Your contributions have a direct impact on our services to local victims and their families.

This campaign will continue until the end of the fiscal year: June 30, 2018.
Not Your Average Fundraiser
CVC was invited next door to StreamGeeks, video streaming experts, to do a pilot fundraiser LIVE through YouTube.

There were balloons, bubble cannons, and confetti triggered in real time determined by the donations that came in.

We thank our neighbors at StreamGeeks for the platform to share our agency's story, and to ultimately raise $1,000 during the course of the interview.
