Why do victims need a place? Because everyone needs a place.
There is nothing more secure, grounding, and healing than being connected to a place. Everywhere else in the justice system there are houses; the courthouse, the big house, half-way houses- everywhere.
Crime victims are part of the justice making process, so it only seems appropriate that they have a house as well. Candace House needs to be comparable in presence and importance.
