This project is targeted specifically for the Black community because most of the services offered for Crime Victim Services is never targeted and most often the Black community is under-served. We continue to face systemic inequality, no awareness, exclusion and segregation thus the reason for our reach.
If you or someone you know has been injured or traumatized as a result of a violent crime in Washington State and identifies as a member of the Black community, we can help provide information and referrals, advocacy and help with Emergency Financial Assistance. We will assist in completing the Crime Victim Benefit Claims form. This can provide you with time and space to focus on your healing without additional financial concerns that can result from the violence or abuse, including costs of medical care, counseling or lost income.
Examples of Emergency Financial Assistance we can provide:
Expenses connected to the victimization, such as:
- Expenses related to your immediate health and safety needs
- Food, clothing, transportation or shelter
- Child care while you access services related to your crime
- Transitional housing expenses
- Expenses related to ensuring your sense of security like fixing broken locks or broken windows, etc.
This list is not exhaustive, please reach out if you or someone you may know can benefit from this assistance. You can email email@example.com , call (425) 760-8306 or just leave your information in the signup form below. Our team will reach out to you in your preferred method of communication when it’s safe for you to talk.
