DETAILS

Sturgeon Victim Services is a volunteer organization working in partnership with the Morinville RCMP to provide support, information, and referrals to survivors of crime and trauma.

We serve the Morinville RCMP Detachment area which includes Morinville, Bon Accord, Legal, Gibbons, Alexander First Nation, and Sturgeon County as a 24/7/365 crisis response team.

As a charitable organization, we are funded by Provincial, Municipal and Corporate grants along with individual contributions. These funds provide for operational expenses as well as specific areas of interest.

Currently, we are taking the steps to lease an Equinox for use in transporting our Court Support Dog named Hope to court appearances, hospital visits and Zebra Unit Interviews, and our staff for attending crisis call-outs.

Driving our own vehicles can put us at risk if our license plates are recorded or our vehicles are recognized by a subject of complaint.

We have the funds to support the first year of leasing for roughly $650 a month but are looking to secure the following two years, plus the detailing and costs for maintenance.

Another area requiring financial assistance is for victim expenses such as transportation and emergency accommodations, cell phones, food and clothing. We are often dealing with victims fleeing abuse that have left the scene with only the clothes on their backs.

The needs are great and we celebrate that “many hands make light work” or in our case, many donors get the needs met.
