The Crime Victims' Center of Chester County, Inc. is holding its annual giving campaign. We are a nonprofit organization that serves the entirety of Chester County (more than 500,000 people) for people of all ages who have been victimized by crime and violence.
Who do we serve? Your neighbors, coworkers, the children who your kids go to school with; everyday people that never thought they'd find themselves in a dark situation. If you live in Chester County, or you are a victim of a crime in Chester County, you're eligible for our free services.
We advocate for people that have been affected by sexual assault, child abuse, homicide, stalking/ harassment and every crime in between. We are there 24/7/365 with two hotlines and through counseling services, victim advocacy, accompaniment to exams/ court hearings/ interviews, restitution (reimbursement) and more.
We are also out in the community at schools, organizational groups, and large-scale events to educate the public on our services and how to prevent victimization.
