Giving Campaign: Help Give Victims Hope
The Crime Victims' Center of Chester County, Inc. is holding its annual givingcampaign. We are a nonprofit organization that serves the entirety of Chester County (more than 500,000 people) for people of all ages that have been victimized by crime and violence.
Who do we serve? Your neighbors, coworkers, the children that 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 a crime takes place 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 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.
