VERMONT CRIME VICTIM FORUMS
Have you been impacted by crime in Vermont? We want to hear from you!
The Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services is hosting a series of forums around Vermont to provide an opportunity for all victims and survivors of crime, including business owners and family members, to share their experiences in the criminal justice system. Our goal is to ensure Vermont's system is fair, accountable, and responsive to victim needs. Local stakeholders and service providers will be on hand to listen and provide support.
The closest locations to Safeline's service area are Barre, Aldrich Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 27th from 6:00 - 8:00pm and Hartford, Town Municipal Building On Tuesday, Oct.3rd from 6:00 - 8:00pm
You can also participate by sending comments to: email@example.com. What did you appreciate about your experience? How do you wish the system could change to better meet your needs and the needs of your community?
You can learn more about CCVS and the free services we provide at www.ccvs.vermont.gov.
Safeline is excited to announce our new logo!
This new look reflects our ongoing mission as we strive to end domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in Orange and northern Windsor counties. As we worked with Linda Mirabile from RavenMark, Inc., a central Vermont graphic design and communications firm, we needed a redesigned logo that would convey a feeling of safety and inclusion for the survivors we serve. We also wanted to show how Safeline works collaboratively with other organizations for a sense of network and community.
The final logo design is suggestive of a quilt pattern (safety, comfort) with overlapping lines (networking) and rounded diamonds (community, people). The pattern does not say violence or abuse but rather is meant to convey a positive image of what Safeline does to help support and heal those we serve.
The new image is dynamic, showing forward motion similar to the survivors Safeline assists. We are pleased that this logo will become a recognizable identity that people will associate with Safeline’s mission of advocacy, prevention, education and social change.
Thank you for your ongoing support of Safeline's mission,

Safeline has many types of volunteer opportunities. Following is a brief description of some of them.
Hotline Volunteer - Answering Safeline hotline calls. We provide extensive training for hotline volunteers. By using available pagers, answering hotline calls is flexible and convenient, and you can safely and easily respond from your own home. When a volunteer is covering a hotline shift, Safeline staff are always available for backup with any questions or concerns.
Community Outreach - Several types of activity fall within community outreach. We are always trying to better inform our communities about Safeline, our resources and also about the issues of domestic and sexual violence. We frequently need help with distributing poster, brochures, etc. throughout our area, and also with setting up and staffing tables or displays at area fairs and various community events.
Clerical or Computer Work - We often need help in our office with various clerical functions such as copying or collating materials, stuffing or addressing envelopes, maintaining our website, etc.
Building Maintenance - it is very useful to have someone help us with cleaning, mowing, small building repairs or various types of yard work.
Fundraising - At various times, we do fundraising events such as our Annual Appeal, raffles, etc. We also need help gathering signatures on petitions for town appropriation requests or in having representatives who could provide information about Safeline at the annual Town Meetings.
We would love to talk with you further about volunteering! Please contact Judy at (802) 685-7900, ext. 307 or at the email connection below.
