Who We Are

The Common Denominator

Lubbock Victim Assistance Services, Inc was founded in 1993 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

We work along side local law enforcement, the District Attorney's Office, and the Texas Attorney General's Office to advocate for victims and their families.

Here at LVAS we fight to ensure that all victims are treated with fairness, dignity and compassion by the criminal justice system and /or all other agencies involved. We strive to be the one common denominator for the victims of violent crime and family survivors of homicide.

Shattered Dreams

Shattered dreams is an immersive program that shows high school students the dangerous and consequences of drinking and driving. 

Making a Difference

This year LVAS partnered with Monterey High School to put on Shattered dreams.

Doing What’s Needed

Students were shown the what would happen if they were arrested and convicted of killing someone while drinking and driving.

Tackling the Issue

A selected group of Juniors and Seniors from MHS were asked to potray the victim, defendent and friends involved. These students were then taken to the hospital to be tested for alcohol, the jail to be processed and the DA's office for sentencing.

Wrapping it up 

This is all filmed and shown at MHS to the studnet body so they can see the consequences of drinking and driving. Shattered Dreams dives deep to show students that they must think before they act, not jsut for themselves but for others around them. 

          LVAS would like to say Thank You to: LPD, Lubbock Fire and EMS, Judge Eichman, Tom Brummet, Staff and Students at MHS and all the participents involved in making this Shattered Dreams a success.
