My name is Rita I had two sons murdered to violence, I joined DBA in 1992 and have been volunteering and helping youth and families with P.T.S.D. every since. It was remarkable to find this organization because back in 1992 there was none like this anywhere that could help mothers and youth like they have and still continue to do today

My name is Olga. I have been a volunteer for this organization since 1995. I love working with other women who have been a victim of a crime. I have myself experienced being a victim of a crime. My fiance was murdered in the driveway of his home. I was pregnant at the time and my son had to grow up without his father

I have worked with this organization in the past. They are dedicated to what they do for victims of crime. I had one son that went through the violence prevention class. One day with the counselors there and he was already thinking positive. He went through graduated and he is happy, married and with children. He turned out great. Mrs Hawkins is the best teacher for kids she uses a no non sense approach and gets on their level. It worked for us
