CVC is exceptionally grateful to host several annual Fundraisers.  Among these donations are toys, art projects, raffle proceeds, and several other philanthropic donations throughout the year.

Additionally, shopping through Amazon Smile and selecting Crime Victim Center as your charity of choice will allow CVC to receive up to 0.5% of the purchase price.


CVC welcomes interns to apply.  Due to the limited staff we can only accommodate 1-2 per semester. Those students who wish to carry out their internship at Crime Victim Center will receive an excellent understanding of the inner workings of our agency.

In addition to these opportunities, feel free to contact Direction of Prevention Education Amy Blackman at (814) 455-9414 with any other ideas or suggestions.

The staff at CVC look forward to meeting you. Thank you for continuing to make a difference in our community.
