You Can Help!

 

Did you know every day in Fairfax County we respond to two people who are at high risk for homicide or serious physical injury at the hands of the person they love?

To help prevent those homicides from happening, OFWDSVS has partnered with the Fairfax County Police Department and local nonprofit organizations to implement the evidence-based Lethality Assessment Program (LAP). When patrol officers respond to the scene of a domestic violence crime, they screen for certain risk factors. When those factors are present, the officer immediately calls OFWDSVS’ 24-Hour LAP Line to connect the victim of the crime with an advocate. Victims are then educated on their options, including strategies for keeping themselves safer. The LAP has been proven to help jurisdictions better predict and, ultimately, prevent serious injury and homicide from happening.

We need your help to give victims more safety options!

$75 buys a home security system for a high-risk victim. Other victims may need help with transportation or getting their locks changed. Every amount helps. Please donate today by sending a check to:
