Teddy Bear Rooms 

CVUCF has been creating “teddy bear” rooms in District Attorneys’ and Child Protective Services’ offices throughout California — giving young victims and children of victims a safe haven during the long and often painful criminal justice process.

Victims to Victory 

CVUCF is launching this innovative program that helps crime victims re-enter society. With so much emphasis given to preparing criminals for society, the victim has often been ignored. Yet they go through tremendous emotional and physical trauma and often fail to regain their financial footing and career path. Victims to Victory partners with local donors and volunteers to help victims write their resume, build their wardrobe, gain good schedule habits, learn new skills, and move beyond their victim status to launch a new future. 

 

Change of Venue

CVUCF is the only group to offer financial assistance to victims’ families who must travel to other parts of the state, due to a change of venue, to attend criminal proceedings for a murdered loved one. To apply for financial assistance, please contact us at mail@crimevictimsunited.com

 

Scholarships 

CVUCF provides annual scholarships to victims of crime, including The Catina Rose Scholarship assists young victims or victims’ children in fulfilling their educational dreams, and The Protect Scholarship which rewards young people who are directing their energies in positive ways. Scholarship Criteria and Application 

 

Victims Memorial

The Crime Victims Memorial Wall is a remembrance to the 325 victims of the 184 affirmed convicted killers currently on California’s Death Row. This portable, five-panel, faux-marble memorial is available for victims’ rights and public safety functions across the state.
