For those in Prince George’s County – some 1400 a year – who experience a crime or suffer trauma, CAFY functions as the “social services emergency room.” Its most important job is to minimize trauma and ensure that people have a voice. Staff help with answers to questions like “so what now?”, “so where do I go?”, and “so when will I feel safe?” Therapists address mental health concerns, advocates help secure safe shelter, food, and clothing, and attorneys offer pro-bono legal services – all helping to answer "so what?/where?/when?" questions and ensure that victims become survivors. Services are offered in English and Spanish and are available 24/7 via the CAFY Helpline. For anyone who experiences a crime in the county, CAFY is there to help, providing necessary wraparound services on the journey toward healing and justice.

About the Catalogue for Philanthropy
Each year 120 expert reviewers evaluate applicants for distinction, merit, and impact. Each featured charity has been successfully site visited and its financials given the thumbs up. The Catalogue for Philanthropy charges no fees and raises funds separately to support its work. Since 2003, it has raised over $40 million for charities across the Greater Washington region.
The Catalogue for Philanthropy looks to friends like you to keep our services independent and entirely free of charge. Consider a small contribution to the Catalogue to cap off your gift and help the causes you care about get the full support they deserve!
