Serving Victims Since 1985
Victims for Justice was founded in 1985 following the loss of Janice Leinhart and Sharon Nahorney's parents and their aunt who were brutally mudered during a home invasion. Following the murder, a hearing was held to waive all charges. The hearing was closed to the public, denying all rights of the family to defend their lost loved ones. Directly following the hearing, Lienhart and Nahorney aggressively fought in the victims' rights movement in Alaska. They wanted to create a place where victims of violent crime could get professional assistance while also coping with their grief and trauma.
We serve and advocate for victims of all violent crimes; including assault, arson, robbery, kidnapping, elder abuse, child abuse, bullying, hate crimes, and drunk driving. We also help surviving family and friends of homicide victims.
Our services are free of charge, but donations are always welcome and needed.
