Leadership Snohomish County

Victim Support Services is excited to announce that we are one of the community organizations chosen to collaborate with Leadership Snohomish County (LSC) for a Community Impact Project Team. VSS was selected for their nine-month Leadership Program, which is designed to help private sector, and non-profit professionals acquire an understanding of the critical issues affecting the region and the leadership and stewardship capabilities necessary to resolve them.
Leadership Snohomish County helps local professionals develop and use their best leadership qualities, promoting civic engagement and sustainable leadership across Snohomish County.  LSC has used hands-on service projects as the means to deepen the connection between the “talk” and the “walk” in our community.  LSC assigned three team members to VSS that will help us re-design our brand message and strengthen the delivery of our organization’s message within the community by re-designing our website, outreach materials, and create a short summary video on our services. 
Victim Support Services Executive Director, Dr. Michaela Weber along with Director of Hotline & Volunteer Services, Leslie McPherson (whom has been assigned project manager) will work alongside our three-team members.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity and thankful for LSC for believing in our mission and selecting us as one of the 20 Community Impact Project Partners.
More updates and information to follow as we move the process along.

"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.”

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
