Kay White Legacy Award

Event Proceeds to Support Victim Assistance Program

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Victim Assistance Program (VAP) at Common Ground. The Victim Assistance Program assists victims of all crime at no cost. People who have been victimized by homicide loss, sexual assault or abuse, domestic violence, elder abuse, assault and robbery can receive services to reduce immediate trauma through advocacy, crisis counseling, legal consultation, support groups, referral services and more.

After someone has been victimized from a crime, they often face trauma physically and emotionally. Additionally, their sense of safety and privacy can be at risk. But the aftermath of crimes effects more than just the individual – it effects other family members, friends and community members. Common Ground’s VAP team is there to support victims, but also raise awareness and provide training to community service providers. Federal funding has been cut drastically in 2022. Funds raised from this event will ensure our team can continue to offer services to our most vulnerable people and communities.
