National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is celebrated every year in April. This week is dedicated to learn about victimization, the effect victimization has on individuals, families, friends and the community, and to promote laws, policies, and programs to help victims of crime. Every year, thousands of communities across the nation honor the dedication of those before us that established victim rights and renew commitment to guarantee that all victims have the rights and services they need to recover from crime.” –Victim Support Services

A Safe Place is always working in the community to prevent family violence before it happens. One of the ways we help is working with teens to spread the word about healthy relationships. Our February events for “Turn Up 2018” are led by Davinia Williams, Teen/Outreach Coordinator at ASP.
For a third straight year the Raiders Women’s Association (RWA) brought their Holiday Gift Drive to A Safe Place. The RWA consists of spouses and significant others of players, coaches and staff as well as front office staff members. In addition, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr lent his support with a Public Service Announcement.
The awesome Heather Carr, Brittany Olawale (both pictured to the left with ASP Director, Carolyn Russell), Eryn Jackson and Cori Latham did more than provide gifts for ASP families. They also delivered a van full of gifts and spent time at A Safe Place meeting residents, clients and staff, providing amazing support and encouragement.
