Pieces of Me, by Lizbeth Meredith

Author Lizbeth Meredith went through hell after the kidnapping of her children by her husband.  This book documents her struggle to get her children back to the US.  She is donating  portion of her proceeds to many deserving nonprofits, including us during Domestic Violence Action Month.  Join us October 8th (2-5) at Fireside Books and Dec. 2nd (5-8) at Sara's Gift Cache.

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.
