PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) This week is noted as National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. The theme this year is 30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice. To kick off the week, the Central South Dakota Child Assessment Center, which is a department of Avera St. Mary’s Hospital in Pierre, held an art viewing on Sunday in the old St. Mary’s building. Art students from T. F. Riggs High School and their instructors were honored for their time and talent in contributing paintings that are being displayed at the Child Assessment Center.
The center serves children who have allegedly been mistreated and provides crisis intervention, victim assistance and after care to the victims and non-offending family members. For information on helping crime victims, visit the website developed by the National Center for Victims of Crime at www.ncvc.org.
