Send CVS Your Most Meaningful Remembrance

Next year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Texas Victims of Crime Compensation Fund. We are asking you to send us your most meaningful story of how crime victims' compensation has helped a victim or their family. Advocates are integral in assisting victims with compensation when most vulnerable. As an advocate, you also have continued contact with victims.

Please consider the difference that compensation has made in the lives of the victims that you assist. We all know that one real example makes more of an impression than pages of statistics. Your examples will help us get the word out to those who most need to hear it.

Please join us in celebrating this milestone by sending your story by January 1, 2010, to crimevictims@texasattorneygeneral.gov. If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact Suzanne McDaniel at (800)-983-9933.
