There are many meaningful ways you can assist Victim Assistance Program and help make a profound impact. Learn which giving opportunities are right for you and your financial situation. Every gift will make a difference!

Secure Financial Contribution

Private Fundraiser

Host a fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for Victim Assistance Program.

Amazon Charity List

Shop our Amazon Charity List to help victims of crime and trauma as they transition into safety. Too often, access to community resources can take days to start, and families need immediate access to basic necessities. All items donated from this list will directly assist victimized families as they navigate the aftermath of crime and trauma such as domestic violence, fires, homicides, or sexual assault.

Donation items for our Children Who Witness Violence Drop-In Center may also be purchased directly off of the program’s Amazon Charity List, or dropped off at any VAP location Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm. If you have questions about our needs or the program, please contact Ari Barrett, Director of Strategic Partnerships, at 330.376.7022 ext. 212 or [email protected]. Thank you for your support!
