Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer and Dr. Monica Taylor, Chair of Delaware County Council, announced their plans to observe National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with an event in front of the County Courthouse at noon on Thursday, April 25, 2024.

According to the National Office for Victims of Crime, “this year’s national theme—How would you help? Options, services, and hope for crime survivors.—focuses on the moral responsibility we all have as human beings to actively participate in the healing of others. It is a call-to-action for us all to create safe environments for crime victims to share what happened to them. By doing so, we’re able to offer support, options for life-saving services, and, most importantly, a pathway to hope.”

Organizations serving victims in Delaware County will be available with information about their work. The organizations that will be present include the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County, Delaware County Victim Assistance Center, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Delaware County, Family Support Line, Delaware County Office of Services for the Aging, Legal Aid of Southeastern PA, Delaware County Juvenile Court and Probation Services, and Every Child Counts.
