NATCHEZ – Natchez Children’s Services was one of 16 organizations receiving the Victim Advocacy Excellence Award for their work with victims of crime.

As Mississippi and the nation mark the week of April 21 as Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Attorney General Fitch gathered with partners, Children’s Advocacy Centers of Mississippi and Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence, to honor those who help victims of crime recover and become survivors.

“A criminal act causes more than the immediate loss of a precious life, physical harm, or loss of property,” said Attorney General Lynn Fitch. “When a person is victimized by another’s criminal act, their sense of security and peace, hope and trust is destroyed and it takes time and love to rebuild those. This week, we celebrate the men and women across Mississippi who help them to forge that pathway to recovery. We are so thankful for those who open their hearts to others to help victims become survivors.”
