ESCANABA - "Extending the Vision: Reaching every victim" is the theme for the 2012 National Crime Victim's Rights Week. Representatives at Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) would like to hear from you if you've been injured or have had a loved one injured or killed in an alcohol-related crash. MADD has literature and support available not only for the injured person but also for those in their family and circle of support. We can help you and those you love learn how to best cope with the changes resulting from the incident. We offer these supportive resources to everyone touched by the crash - friends, family, and neighbors - anyone whose life has been impacted. Whether you are family or friend, acquaintance or co-worker, we can help you.
MADD was started by a mother whose daughter was killed in a drunk driving crash. However, MADD's services are not only for mothers. We are also not prohibitionists. Our mission is to 1) eliminate drunk driving, 2) support victims of this violent crime, and 3) prevent underage drinking. We are not here to judge. We are advocates for prevention and accountability. For victims, we are here to listen and provide support.
MADD has trained staff and volunteers serving all of Michigan. If you would like to volunteer or talk about how you can obtain supportive services through MADD, please call Betsy Harris at 906-474-9346 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're here to help. It's our mission.
