The 24th Annual Courage Walk

A time to honor the strength and courage of survivors in the aftermath of crime - and a time to speak out in unison for crime victims’ rights and services today and in the future.

Eleanor Roosevelt spoke directly to these unsung heroes when she said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘ I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. ’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do. ”

The courage of survivors who “do the thing they think they cannot do” and then find a way to live life again, inspires this event.
We feel blessed to work in an environment where the values we hold dear are shared so many – Police, the District Attorney’s Office, Non-Profit Service Providers, Human Services, Jefferson Center for Mental health, to name a few.
Advocacy - We advocate for victims to be treated with fairness, respect and dignity and for their rights as afforded by the Colorado Constitution.
Healing – Our belief is that victims’ recovery is affected positively with early intervention, education and resources.
Empowerment – Victims who feel safe, have their basic needs met and receive compassionate support are more likely to feel empowered, have hope and a willingness to participate in the criminal justice process.
Justice – Justice is best served by interagency communication and cooperation, victim participation and system improvement.
Ethics – VOI values honest communication, professionalism, trust and quality of service.

We are especially thankful for our devoted, professional staff and our volunteers who donate countless hours to respond to the needs of people who’ve been hurt by crime and other traumatic incidents. Finally, we could not do this work without the financial support of private citizens, like you. We promise you we will make wise use of your money.
Life matters. When life gets hard, get help. End teen suicide.
