I have been involved with Holly's House almost from it's inception, having become a Board Member after the idea was launched, but prior to the actual, physical location being completed. I have prosecuted many cases that have been investigated utilizing the services of Holly's House. The cases I am presented from this organization, are so much more thorough in their presentation, and therefore, much easier to prosecute than others. Our community is very fortunate to have such an organization, with the dedication of a staff who is fully vested with the intent and ideals of protecting those who find it hard to protect themselves.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My employment as a sex crimes/child victim crimes prosecutor.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
require all local agencies utilize their services in order to improve the conviction rate of perpetrators of crimes against children.
Dear "buckeye", I so appreciate your time to post such a thoughtful review. It has been an amazing journey from an idea to our current level of operations. I look forward to our continued partnerhsip and success in "assisting victims and supporting survivors". Best Wishes, Sidney
