Who We Are

Brave was formed to assist law enforcement; criminal justice and advocacy groups better address the needs of victims of crime, while also promoting public awareness of crime victim’s rights and services.

Brave’s Board consists of individuals that work with EBR Sheriff’s Office, BR Police Dept., EBR District Attorney’s Office, a non-profit organization and a community member.

The Purpose of BRAVE is to provide services such as:

  • Providing materials and resources to educate victims as to other available resources in the community for victims of crime through outreach programs.
  • Holding events that make the community aware of crime victims, such as the Evening of Remembrance, Flowers on the Lake and Crime Victims Recognition Ceremony
  • Provide limited funding to crime victims in need, when referred by and approved through a B.R.A.V.E. Board Member, when other sources of funds are not available.
  • BRAVE is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.
  • Donations are accepted and tax deductable

How We Can Help

You Can Help Make Positive Change for Victims of Crime.

Progress in improving the treatment of crime victims is due largely to the efforts of thousands of individuals who have turned their victimization into a force for positive change. Victims and survivors of victims of homicide, rape, child abuse, domestic violence, and other serious offenses have transformed their experiences into a vehicle for ensuring that victims of similar types of crime receive true justice, meaningful assistance, and compassionate treatment before the law. Many victims and survivors volunteer their time and resources to create and staff programs such as shelters and crisis hotlines, conduct legislative advocacy, and speak on victim impact panels.

Opportunities to help victims exist in almost every community. This and other work for positive change helps ensure that the progress made to date is not lost and that new ground is broken to gain greater justice and healing for all victims of crime.

You are making a difference in the community when you make a tax-deductible donation, 100% of your donation will be used for direct victim services and crime victim outreach and awareness.
