The NCVAN Crime Victims' Memorial Garden is a special place where loved ones of homicide victims can remember the ones taken by violent crime. The names of homicide victims are inscribed on the bricks that line the walkway of the garden, reflecting the memories of those who are forever etched on our hearts.
Murder doesn’t just affect an individual; it also affects a family and a community, creating an array of emotional and practical needs – that are often left unmet.
Travel Reimbursement (through DA offices only)
