Victim Rights Center of Connecticut helps crime victims rebuild shattered lives. We provide victim-centered, holistic legal services to victims of sexual assault, child abuse, violence against people idetifying as LGBT, elder abuse, and homicide.
Your participation is needed so we can continue to help victims without charging legal fees.
Donate now to allow us to continue this direct, personal service not available anywhere else in Connecticut! Think about the following situations:
Imagine you have been sexually assaulted in your apartment, and the offender still lives in the complex. You have a lease, and can't afford a different place to live without a return of your security deposit. Safety or homelessness? Victim Rights Center attorneys intervene to get the lease cancelled and your deposits back.
A child is sexually abused by a step-dad. Neither mom nor the police believe the report, and mom insists the child must visit overnight. Victim Rights Center goes to court to protect the child from being ordered to spend the night with the abuser.
A sexual assault victim finds the courage to report her sexual assault, but fears she won't be believed. Victim Rights Center connects her to a victim-aware Detective, so she doesn't have to face all-too-common victim-blaming.
These, and so many other clients, have been helped by Victim Rights Center lawyers, when no one else would listen. Grants can help support us, but without individual donations, we cannot afford to serve all the survivors who come to us for help.
Keep this unique resource vibrant. Help crime victims with a generous donation today!
