Estes Valley Crisis Advocates (EVCA) is a non-profit agency providing 24/7 on-scene crisis response, advocacy and follow up services to victims of crime and trauma in the Estes Valley. EVCA provides outreach services including referrals, counseling, community education and training. In addition, they operate a 3 bedroom, 10 bed Domestic Violence Safehouse. Domestic violence victims are provided with safe housing for up to 6 weeks. All EVCA services are provided at no cost to the client.
In a meeting with the Rotary Club of Estes Park Community Service Committee, an urgent need was communicated for replacement of a broken computer and badly worn towels, sheets and other linens.
The clients need the computer to seek employment and housing, for medical and court appointments, and other assistance areas which require computer access.
The estimated cost of the computer is $500. The estimated cost for sheets, towels and linens for the 10 bed safehouse is $1,200. The $1,000 from the Governor's grant will be augmented by $700 from the Rotary Club of Estes Park.
EVCA will make a presentation to the Rotary Club of Estes Park. Rotarians will provide assistance in purchasing the items as needed. The financial support by the Rotary Club of Estes Park will be reported in the local newspapers and communications from EVCA.
