Mission Statement

The Emergency Victim Assistance (EVA) Program is the program on which the organization was founded. The EVA program provides short-term, emergency financial assistance to low- and fixed-income crime victims for such necessities as food, housing, utilities payments, medical expenses, prescription medication costs, rehabilitation costs, burial fees, and others. The citizens served by the program are victims of crimes such as robbery, assault, domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, drunk driving, sexual assault, molestation, murder, and other violent and non-violent crimes. All referrals come from the offices of the San Diego County District Attorney, the San Diego Family Justice Center, the San Diego Police Department, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department and other law enforcement agencies working in partnership with The Crime Victims Fund to serve the needs of crime victims.

While there are government agencies that assist crime victims with both monetary support and psychological counseling, the long and arduous allocation process can take from six months to a year. The Crime Victims Fund, however, offers immediate assistance with no strings attached. There are no loans to repay. There are no extensive claims to fill out. Most importantly, the assistance comes at a time when the victim needs it the most -- immediately after the crime.
