For anyone who experiences a crime in Prince George’s County, CAFY is there to provide comprehensive support on the journey toward healing and justice. An agreement with the Prince George’s Police Department means clients are referred to staff directly following a crime (or they can call the emergency hot- line, which operates 24/7). Advocates are placed directly in local police stations to help those in need, and services are offered in both English and Spanish. Dedicated staff and volunteers first address immediate concerns, securing safe shelter, food, and clothing. Case managers then work with clients to create individualized plans that provide a range of care, including pro-bono legal assistance, counseling, and support groups. Community Outreach offers education and prevention tips to improve personal and neighborhood safety. Last year, CAFY empowered more than 1,400 victims to become survivors. More help is needed.
