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
Te organization worked with probation kids. My son was part of the program Youth and Social responsibility. After the 12 week course he completely turned around. He finished school and now has a family her is taking care of a job and on his way to college. Thank You Mrs. Hawkins .
Review from Guidestar
The women who run's this program.... Lorna Hawkins. Lost two children to Drive By shooting's...... has helped many families who have faced this same unfortunite fate. & she still continues to fight on. She need's more help. Pleas consider her company.
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
