* Support for victims of domestic violence, assistance
with Protection from Abuse orders, and 24-hour
assistance to those in crisis to ensure their safety by
arranging shelter, medical treatment, and counseling.
These programs are making a difference. They give
children, teens, and others who had been suffering in
silence for years the courage to come forward, identify
their abusers, seek justice, and take the first step toward
recovery. In doing so, they have prevented the abuse of
others and saved untold lives.
CVC strives to assist anyone who is victimized by
crime or violence in Chester County, whether they are
residents or not. We work closely with local hospitals,
police departments, schools, the Chester County District
Attorney's Office, and other important agencies to
help victims move forward, heal, and live healthy, safe,
productive, and joyful lives.
Our ability to provide these services relies entirely upon
government agencies, foundations, and local groups, such
as the United Way, as well as the generosity of volunteers,
individuals, businesses and organizational partners within
our community. Now, more than ever, CVC needs

No one chooses to become a victim of crime. But you
can choose to get involved and to help CVC fulfill its
mission through educational and preventative efforts
that assist law enforcement and provide vital therapeutic,
wellness, and recovery services to those in need.
At heart, CVC is a Chester County organization - it's
your organization. And while we hope and pray you never
have to use our services, we encourage you to support
them with your time, your talents, and your contributions.
Please visit our website at www.cvcofcc.org and I hope
you'll join us for our upcoming Night of Hope Gala
on Friday, November 3rd at 6:30 p.m. in the American
Helicopter Museum, just outside of West Chester.
