A crime victim’s suffering has a ripple effect on the family, friends, neighborhood, and the larger community. Without a coordinated effort to address the victim’s needs—legal, mental health, security, housing—the victim can, and often does, feel helpless. Network for Victim Recovery of DC aims to change the impact of victimization by providing holistic, comprehensive services to victims of all types of crime in DC. Our charity of the month empowers victims to achieve survivor-defined justice through a collaborative continuum of advocacy, case management, and legal services. NVRDC also runs the advocacy portion of the city's Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program, providing crisis intervention and case management to all sexual assault survivors in the District seeking a forensic medical exam.
For each almond creme cupcake (vanilla cake topped with almond frosting + toasted almonds) sold this month at Sticky Fingers, we’ll donate $1 to support NVRDC. Eat cupcakes for charity!
