Hands of Hope 

Resource Center

On motion by Kircher and seconded by Becker, the following resolution was introduced and adopted by unanimous vote: 

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

April 7-13, 2019

Whereas, in 1982, the President’s Task Force on Victims of Crime envisioned a national commitment to a more equitable and supportive response to victims;

Whereas, the commemorative week celebrates the energy, perseverance, and commitment that launched the victims’ rights movement, inspired its progress, and continues to advance the cause of justice for crime victims;

Whereas, crime can leave a lasting impact on any person, regardless of age, national origin, race, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, immigration, or economic status;

Whereas, incorporating communities’ existing experts and trusted sources of support into efforts to fully serve survivors will develop a criminal justice system response that is truly accessible and appropriate for all victims of crime;

Whereas, with the unwavering support of their communities and victim service providers behind them, survivors will be empowered to face their grief, loss, fear, anger, and hope without fear of judgment, and will feel understood, heard, and respected;

Whereas, servicing victims and rebuilding their trust restores hope to victims and survivors, as well as supports thriving communities;

Whereas, engaging a broader array of healthcare providers, community leaders, faith organizations, educators and businesses can provide new links between victims and services that improve their safety, healing, and access justice;

Whereas, honoring the rights of victims, including the rights to be heard and to be treated with fairness, dignity, and respect, and working to meet their needs rebuilds their trust in the criminal justice and social service systems;

Whereas, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week provides an opportunity to recommit to ensuring that all victims of crime - especially those who are challenging to reach or serve - are offered culturally and linguistically accessible and appropriate services in the aftermath of crime; and

Whereas, Hands of Hope Resource Center is hereby dedicated to strengthening victims and survivors in the aftermath of crime, building resilience in our communities and our victim responders, and working for a better future for all victims and survivors.

Now therefore, the Todd County Board of Commissioners do hereby proclaim the week of April 7-13, 2019, as

Crime Victims’ Rights Week

And reaffirm Todd County’s commitment to creating a victim service and criminal justice response that assists all victims of crime during Crime Victims’ Rights Week and throughout the year; and to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for those community members, victim service providers, and criminal justice professionals who are committed to improving our response to all victims of crime so that they may find relevant assistance, support, justice, and peace.

On motion by Neumann and seconded by Becker, the following resolution was introduced and adopted by unanimous vote:

SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH PROCLAMATION - APRIL 2019

WHEREAS, Hands of Hope Resource Center and the Todd County Board of Commissioners jointly strive to make Todd County communities a safe and healthy place to live and to raise a family, and;

WHEREAS, victims of sexual assault deserve to have supportive voices working to speak out on their behalf, and to create public awareness and provide education activities, and;  

 WHEREAS, in 2018 Hands of Hope Resource Center served 53 victims of sexual assault, 24 of those victims were children under age 18, something that we have seen a concerning increase in the past couple years These numbers may not seem so staggering, except for the fact that over 70 percent (%) of sexual assaults are never reported to anyone, and;

WHEREAS, these assaults are not necessarily happening when folks are off visiting in a larger city around total strangers. Many sexual assaults happen within one mile of the victim’s home, and 80 to 90 percent (%) of these assaults are committed by someone the victim knows, such as a classmate, friend or relative, and;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Todd County Commissioners join Hands of Hope Resource Center in an effort to raise awareness of sexual assaults, encourage folks to step up and stand up for victims, and also hold offenders of these assaults accountable for their behavior, in a hope that they will receive needed treatments to change their behaviors, and allow for safer communities for all, and;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Todd County Board of Commissioners, does hereby proclaim April 2019 as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and encourages citizens to speak up, if you see something, say something, and, or call law enforcement. Don’t let this crime continue in our county. One never knows when they, a family member or friend could become the next victim.
