Violence, crisis doesn't stop for COVID-19

At the heart of the CVIC’s mission is the health and well-being of children and adults experiencing violence. Never – in four decades of serving Grand Forks County – has this been more important than now. Yet, as our community and the world at large respond to an unfathomable pandemic, violence – and the crisis that consumes it – won’t stop for COVID-19. Neither will we.   

Your generous support can help now more than ever.
