Moving Forward Together Annual & Capital Campaign

Help Us Reach Our Goals

We have some bitter sweet news to share – we’re moving – moving forward together. While responding to the needs of our community, we have sadly outgrown our historic home on Furnace Street. Since 1972, Victim Assistance Program has helped thousands of individuals transition from hardship to healing. In 2017, our crisis intervention and advocacy services impacted over 6,000 Summit County residents. Unfortunately, more recently, our services nearly tripled due to a very
violent time in our community.

24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our highly trained victim advocates, alongside first responders, are on the front lines responding to assaults, robberies, shootings, homicides, and more. The work we do is difficult and current challenges have placed increased stresses on our staff and facilities. Therefore, we are so pleased to move into our new 10,000+ square foot location at 137 S. Main Street later this fall.  Read Full Press Release.
