You Have the Power (YHTP) is a non-profit that empowers those victimized by crime through education, advocacy, and understanding.
Provide crime victims with information on what to do and where to go next, and how they can work with investigators and authorities to get the best possible outcome.
Educate the public to keep them from becoming victims in the first place.
Free resource guides and community presentations explain how crime happens, how to prevent it, and what to do if it affects you or the people you know. But crime prevention doesn’t stop with current and potential victims.
Their Victim Impact Curriculum helps offenders and parolees understand the impact of what they did, why they did it in the first place, and make better choices in the future. This curriculum also inspired a Youth Impact Curriculum for at-risk youth to keep them from committing serious offenses later.
