9/25 Special Column: Get involved to make a difference
Imagine a community free of violence, a community where families are safe, where homes are peaceful, and children are happy. Unfortunately, this community does not exist for everyone. Last year Project Hope at Quin Rivers, Inc. provided intervention services to almost 500 adult and child victims of domestic and sexual violence in King William, King and Queen, New Kent, and Charles City Counties as well as prevention programming for more than 1000 children and teens. We are a non-profit organization that for 15 years has been providing free and comprehensive services to children and adults experiencing the devastating effects of domestic and sexual violence. Our services include a 24-hour hotline, emergency services, safety assessments, court/legal advocacy, training, case management, individual supportive counseling, support groups, and community education. Our goal at Project Hope is to provide a safe and supportive environment for adult and child victims to establish a violence-free life; hold perpetrators accountable for their violence; and create community norms that do not tolerate violence.
