Victims’ Rights Foundation (Baltimore City, Frederick, Montgomery, Prince George’s)
For the past 26 years, the Victims’ Rights Foundation (VRF) has been committed to helping those who do not have a voice. VRF works on behalf of domestic violence victims whose life is in danger or whose life was taken by violence and child victims of sexual assault (sometimes by a family member). It was established in response to the killings of three women: Tamika Black, 19; Tanji Jackson, 21; and Mishan Chinn, 23. Their families were the first recipients of support, which includes assistance throughout the perpetrator’s arrest, trial, and conviction.
