The Center serves all violent crimes.

George, thank you so much for providing such an interesting and informative link.
The Advocacy & Resource Center serves victims of all violent crimes, and we serve men, women and children.
We offer judgment-free support, and we raise awareness about the need for more support for male victims. Each year, the number of men we serve increases by a small percent, and to us, that is success.
Thanks again for posting.
Rhonda Weber
Victim Advocate

Absolutely!

George,

Thank you for your post.

ALL victims of violence -- men, women and children -- are served by Advocacy & Resource, and Rhonda Weber, who spoke to the crowd after the march, made a special point to mention that.

Also, she said they serve not only domestic violence victims, but all victims of any violent crime.
