HALL COUNTY, Ga. -- Hall County will recognize National Crime Victims' Rights Week this Apr. 19-25. The annual event honors crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

Throughout April, Hall County officials will celebrate local agencies that support crime victims, such as Children's Center for Hope and Healing, New Hope Counseling, Family Connection, and Hall-Dawson Court Appointed Special Advocates.

"Hall County is incredibly fortunate to have these outstanding agencies which serve as valuable resources for crime victims," county solicitor Stephanie Woodard said in a statement. "By engaging these agencies, we are able to better serve all victims of crime and provide the necessary support they need to heal."

The county will also dedicate a memorial guardian to all the local children who died after being abused. A dedication ceremony will be held Monday, Apr. 20 at 11:30 a.m. at the Edmondson-Telford Center for Children. The public is invited to attend.

The Edmondson-Telford Center is located at 603 Washington Street in Gainesville.
