Leveraged Resources Management (LRM) client Crime Victim Advocacy Center was named the 2011 "Best Worthy Cause" organization by the Riverfront Times.

Quoted from the RFT story: "St. Louis gets a lot of attention for being "America's Most Dangerous City." But what happens to the victims of crime once the police tape is gone and the media move on to cover the next atrocity? More often than not, the victims are left in the lurch, paralyzed emotionally, if not physically. That's where the Crime Victim Advocacy Center steps in, reaching out to assist those people whose lives have been turned upside down by murder, rape, assault and even lesser crimes such as burglary and identify theft."

"It is a great honor to named the "Best Worthy Cause 2011" by the Riverfront Times.  We're honored not only by the acknowledgement of the work we do, but the experiences of the people we serve," said Julie Lawson, Executive Director. "And thanks to LRM for making it possible for us to focus on our mission."
