Veterans for Victims
Designed to encourage, empower, strengthen and support domestic violence victims by connecting them with a military veteran, escorting them to and from court when facing their abuser.
Through the Veterans For Victims program, Veterans who have served in the armed forces are paired with a domestic violence victim to escort to them to and from court. The intention is to give the victim a feeling of safety, security and support as they testify their case in front of their abuser. Veterans go through an application process before being paired with a domestic abuse survivor.
Confidentiality is key to both the survivor and the veterans involved.
In addition, our intention is to engage veterans in their community. This is the first program of its kind and it is with great excitement that we look forward to its debut.
