“I’ve been feeling angry lately and I haven’t been listening to my mom very well. It’s because I haven’t been coming here. When I come here, it sets me straight for the week and I feel better.” – 8 year old client to CV Therapist
“Thank you! In [REDACTED] I finally decided to press charges against my father for 11 years of sexual abuse. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do. I almost gave up. I called your center and spoke with a women who changed my life. She put me in contact with the d.a. office of Washington county and gave me the first step I needed to take on a very long journey. After 4 years of a unbearable legal process, I’m so happy to say that yesterday [REDACTED], my father made a guilty plea for aggravated sexual assault. Without the guidance and support of the woman I spoke with, I would have gave up hope and not felt the pride of a survivor. Thank you for all you do!” Female Client, Thank You Letter
“…We are very, very grateful for [our legal advocate] – she came to this sentencing on her vacation day! I can’t say enough good things about her…” Client, Thank you Email
