Victims Fund Started For Lewiston, Maine
Our mass shooting families from across the country are devastated by the mass shootings in Lewiston, Maine. Our hearts are with the families of the deceased, those wounded, and those who were present.
To help those most directly impacted by the shooting, our victim/survivor-centric nonprofit VictimsFirst has established a GoFundMe:
We ensure that 100% of what we collect will go directly to the victims of these mass shootings and in cash payments. We take no administration fees so that every penny collected goes to victims.
We urge the leadership in Maine to bring in the nation’s leading expert Jeff Dion, as was done in Uvalde and Colorado Springs to help distribute funds that are collected for the victims and survivors.
We believe in a completely transparent process that allows those directly impacted to be given the privacy to cope and survive the way they need to and choose to.
We encourage the leadership in Maine to quickly provide trauma specialists and the State of Maine’s Crime Victims Compensation Program to release emergency funds directly to the families to help them through this initial aftermath.
We also ask those making decisions to become familiar with our victim-centric, trauma-informed Best Practices for Mass Casualty Crime to organize in the best interest of the victims during this trying time: https://www.victimsfirst.org/bestpractices
VictimsFirst is a nonprofit created by surviving victims of mass casualty crime and trusted supporters who have first-hand experiences of the problems and re-victimization that accompany these acts when there is a lack of coordinated effort and/or understanding of what survivors need.
Our EIN is 32-0656956. Your donation is tax-deductible.
