Wendy Preston Family Award

Dear Valued Supporter:,

Did you know that Joe and Kaye were recently awarded The Wendy Preston Family Award? The award honors a crime victim or survivor who has made significant improvement to the service, rights, or treatment of crime victims.  Joe received this recognition for his years of crime victim advocacy and for founding Voices of Victims.  Joe could not have won this award without Kaye's unwavering support and together we think they have brought compassion and knowledge to the lives of many in the midst of confusing and arcane processes.

Since starting Voices of Victims (VOV) in 2007, Joe and Kaye Cannata have helped over 2350 victims of violent crime to attend 945 parole and community correction hearings. They have spent countless hours providing post-sentencing support ensuring that victims are treated fairly, and with respect. Joe and Kaye know firsthand the setbacks and challenges victim’s face, having lost their daughter to domestic violence, and are eager to use their experience to help others.

It is only through the generous support of people like you that VOV can continue to help people as they maneuver through the psychological, financial, emotional and physical challenges victims continue to face after sentencing.

There are three ways for you to make your tax deductible donation:

We thank you for your continued support.

Warmest Regards, 

Pamela Martinez
President, Voices of Victims

 

The Crime. The Arrest. The Trial. The Sentencing.

Joe and Kaye Cannata
Is it finally over?

Unfortunately it is not. Now there can be numerous appeal hearings, parole hearings and community corrections hearings that a victim may have to attend. Traveling to these hearings can be expensive.

Since starting Voices of Victims in 2007, we have helped over 1450 victims of violent crime to attend 550 parole & community corrections (halfway houses) hearings.

Your donations allow us to continue our work to support victims of violent crime. Your generosity can give a voice to those who otherwise may not be heard.
Please send your tax deductible donations to:
Voices of Victims 625 E. Evans Ave, Denver, CO  80210
or Click Here to donate online.

Sincerely,
Joe & Kaye Cannata
