"Made me feel that I mattered"
I really appreciated all the help I got from the Victim Service ladies. They really made me feel I mattered and gave me lots of information about people who I should contact to help with my issue.

"Thanks for being there with me!"
The Stony VSU advocate was a big help explaining the process and making me less stressed out when I had to go to court as a victim of a crime. I don't think I could of done it without them. Thanks for being there with me!

"May God bless you all."
Thank you for sending a volunteer to be with me when my husband was injured. My family and kids all live away now and I would have had no one to be with me through the shock of it. May God bless you all.
