The Significance of the Vermont Crime Victim Service Awards

As the field of victim services has grown over the years, so has the number of remarkable individuals and organizations who significantly contribute to its success.

Today, the field includes countless people and programs that have, through vision, action, dedication and leadership, improved the lives of victims in the aftermath of crime.

These awards recognize victim activists who have inspired us through their acts of courage and compassion, programs or individuals whose work has been particularly innovative and pioneering, and those who exemplify the long-term commitment that characterizes many of Vermont’s victim service providers, some of whom are themselves victims of crime.

The award winners will be honored at a special ceremony held during National Crime Victims Right's Week; April 19 to 25, 2020. The ceremony is free, open to the public, and all are welcome. The Awards Ceremony will be held on Friday April 24, 2020 in Stowe, Vermont.
