Murder doesn’t just strike an individual; it also strikes a family and a community, creating an array of needs – emotional and practical – that are too often left unmet.
NCVAN is developing a program to engage volunteers to address those needs for victim/survivors in Durham County and Wake County and eventually plans to replicate the project in other communities across North Carolina.
NCVAN has initiated the Homicide Advocacy Project. This project will engage and equip volunteers from across Durham and Wake counties, empowering them to serve and advocate for members of their communities harmed by severe violence. Through community partnerships, NCVAN envisions a network of volunteers providing meaningful responses to the needs created by senseless acts of violence in Wake County.
