Don D. gave the intro. for Patricia Wenskunas, founder, Pres. and CEO of Crime Survivors in 2003. Patricia was in our Exchange Club years ago but has really put all her time into Crime Survivors. Since then, she also founded Crime Stopper in Irvine but has turned that over to others.
She now advocates for many victims of Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, Sexual Abuse, etc. Her efforts have led to the passing of Marsy’s Law (Victim’s Rights) and is now active in
Ventura Co., Riverside Co., LA Co., San Diego Co., and they have opened a 1500 sq. ft. Resource Center with counseling, therapy, Advocacy, Self Defense classes, Art for Healing and more, that was all donated!! They still put on many events to thank those who help, past victims, survivors and still raise funds.
