Victim Support Services is a 501(c) 3 organization.  We exist entirely from funds through state and federal grants, foundation grants, events, and individual donations.

In order to support our direct services we still need to fund the operations of our offices, and make sure we have a professional environment in which to work and meet with clients and partners.  With that in mind we are asking for your help to keep our dollars focused on direct services by providing support for our office operations.  Below you can find a list of items and services that you can donate that will help us accomplish this.

  • Gift card to Costco to allow us to purchase office supplies; i.e., toilet paper, paper towels, reams of paper for the printer, cleaning supplies for the office, printer ink, training supplies, etc.
  • Grocery store gift cards (Safeway, Fred Meyer, etc.) that can be used for both food and gas. Gift cards that we can provide to clients to purchase gas help them attend court hearings.
  • Uber/Lyft gift cards.
  • Bus Passes.
  • Art supplies to be used in homicide survivor support groups and therapy sessions.
  • Cash donations: click here to donate through our secure site.
  • Items for our fundraising events including silent auction items, raffle prizes and giveaways.

"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.”

David Rose

Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

“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.”

Mark Roe

Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney

“When we can have VSS there with us working with people so they are getting taken care of, you feel like the whole system and community is more responsive. VSS can actually really work with and bond with the victims in ways that we can’t because of the volume we deal with.”

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.” 

Myrle Carner

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

“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."
