CVRC LogoOne of the simplest, yet toughest things a person can do in their lives is asking for help. Such stigmas like being weak, needy, or incompetent often are attached with asking for assistance. However, these stigmas could not be more further from the truth!

Asking for help is one of the bravest, most inspiring, and life transforming things you could do for yourself and those you love. By asking for help, you are opening up a whole new world of opportunities that would otherwise be closed off. Asking for help allows you to build trust.

Everyone has “gifts” they are willing to share like time, special talents, resources, etc. If you assume full responsibility of your burden, you deny those closest to you the opportunity to assist you. Most everyone loves the chance to help and are often flattered by being asked to do so.

At the Crime Victims Resource Center (CVRC) we are some of those people who love sharing our gifts with those in need. Our staff is caring and knowledgeable individuals that can get you the help you need. We offer a number of services from personal one on one sessions, support groups, to legal advocacy and referrals.

So the next time you find yourself struggling- remember: “By asking for help we make our lives richer, not poorer”, “It takes a village”, and “We can do so much more together than alone!”
