The Center for Trauma & Resilience, formerly known as The Denver Center for Crime Victims, a nonprofit agency serving crime survivors throughout the Denver metro area, received a Verizon HopeLine® grant to expand our work with individuals impacted by domestic violence.

The Verizon Wireless HopeLine program supports domestic violence prevention and awareness programs across the country. HopeLine collects no-longer-used wireless phones, batteries and accessories from any wireless carrier. Phones that can be refurbished are sold for reuse and those without value are disposed of in an environmentally sound way. Proceeds from the program are used to provide wireless phones and cash grants to local shelters and nonprofit organizations that focus on domestic violence prevention and awareness.

“We are proud to support an organization like The Denver Center for Crime Victims, which is making a difference in the lives of survivors of domestic violence every day,” said Chris Lewter, regional president of Verizon Wireless. “HopeLine has been a passion for Verizon Wireless for almost 15 years, and we are proud to help play a role in ending domestic violence in our communities.”

HopeLine phone donations are accepted at all Verizon Wireless Communications stores across Colorado. For more information about HopeLine, visit them online at www.verizonwireless.com/hopeline.
