Tammi Burke, Manager of Community Services for the Victims Resource Center (VRC), was the guest speaker at the Tunkhannock Rotary Zoom Meeting on Apr 1.  
During her presentation, Tammi reminded the club of the services offered to crime victims by the VRC in Wyoming, Luzerne and Carbon Counties. Counseling and advocacy services are available to crime victims, their families and significant others.  All counseling services are confidential and at no cost to the recipient.
She also informed everyone that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are victims of sexual abuse, but it is usually harder for boys to talk about it.  1 in 4 adult women and 1 in 33 adult men are also victims of sexual assault. Unfortunately, the statistics on sexual assault have not really improved during the last decade. 
After Tammi's presentation, Pres. Terri Detrick virtually presented a $500 to the VRC, which was accepted on their behalf by Tammi.
