Fort Washington, MD. March 6, 2017. Community Advocates for Family & Youth (CAFY) in collaboration with Prince George’s County Police Departments Districts IV, V, VII and South County Community Roundtable (SCCR) invite residents to join us at our 3rd Annual Community Event. CAFY will recognize and honor survivors of crime, community involvement and public safety.
National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) runs every year in April. This year’s theme – Strength, Resilience, Justice —reflects a vision for the future in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, organizations are resilient in response to the challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing. The purpose of the community event is to inspire the community, raise awareness of victims’ rights, and address unmet needs.
Did you know, CAFY, a victim service organization, 501c3 serves individuals, children and families who have been harmed, affected or impacted by crime? CAFY collaborates with both public and private human service organizations on critical program development to help transform lives, re-stabilize families, provide safe havens and other critical needs. The organization serves as the victim service unit for Prince George’s County Police Department and City of Laurel under a Memorandum of Understanding; the only community-based organization in Prince George’s County that reaches out on behalf of the police department to the vulnerable and sometime voiceless individuals impacted by crime. Over the past 14 years, CAFY has systematically added programs to meet the client’s needs by partnering with other organizations within Prince George’s County and the City of Laurel. Come see, hear and cheer on a few who have declared themselves “Self-Defined Survivors”!
