The Lisa Project

We are surrounded by violence. It is happening every day. What happens to the victims of this violence? Does anyone help them? In this interview, Fr. Mike talks with Lachelle Crivello who is the Director of Victim Services for the Riverside County D.A.’s Office. District Attorney’s Offices around the country have Victim Assistance Centers with advocates for the victims who stand behind them and help them through the ordeal. Lachelle, a victim of abuse herself, is well equipped to understand, reach out and help others in similar circumstances. She relates stories of victims that move the heart. Lachelle was also instrumental in getting The Lisa Project into the Riverside area. It is an interactive mobile project that tells the story of all kinds of abuse. There is a reflection room where viewers can write responses, as well as one with various resources. You can actually see parts of the exhibit on the show
