Senomyx Employees Assist Crime Victims
One of the charitable organizations supported by Senomyx employees is The Crime Victims Fund (CVF) of San Diego. CVF was established in 1982 to provide direct assistance and services for crime victims, support evaluation and research on victimology, and to promote public safety. They address the immediate needs of crime victims who have a low- or fixed- income by working with law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys, victim assistance advocates, and others who verify the victim’s needs. Here are a few recent CVF stories…
- A Good Samaritan man in his 20’s prevented the beating of a young woman, but paid the ultimate price. CVF assisted the family with $500 toward his burial expenses.
- A U.S. Marine returned from Iraq and was the victim of a robbery. CVF purchased his bus ticket and food items for his three-day trip home to Florida.
- A nine year-old innocent bystander was shot during an altercation. CVF assisted her family with gas cards to get the child to appointments for physical and psychological therapy.
The Crime Victims Fund has dispensed over $1.6 million in victim assistance to more than 10,000 crime victims in San Diego County during the past 28 years. This year they expanded nationally to work with victim assistance advocates throughout the United States. See how you can help! www.crimevictimsfund.org
