NCVAN Homicide Support Groups
NCVAN has organized a Homicide Survivor Support Group in Wake County. Through collaboration with the Wake County District Attorney's Office, local law enforcement and Campbell Law School, we will offer meetings on a monthly basis on the first Tuesday of each month. This peer-to-peer counseling will provide a safe place where crime victims can gather, ask questions, share their stories, gain helpful information and derive emotional support. If you are interested in attending, please email Elizabeth Watson here.
NCVAN's Crime Victim Memorial Garden, "Victims' Voices, Silent No More," gives us an opportunity to remember those who have been affected by crime while also raising positive thoughts about hope for our future generations. It was the site of our 4th Annual 5K Walk/Run Stride for Survivors on Saturday, April 19, 2014, as well as our annual events during National Crime Victims' Rights Week. More...
