“I am very pleased to see that the NFL is making strides to generate more awareness about the harsh realities of domestic violence and sexual assault by partnering with such a credible organization as NO MORE.

“Over a third of the assistance CalVCP provides is for cases of domestic violence or sexual assault, and we see every day the destruction these crimes cause in the lives of couples and, sadly, their children. We need to continue to educate the public to recognize the signs of domestic violence and to stop and listen. We commend NO MORE for all they do in this effort of public awareness and acknowledge the actions the NFL is taking to provide the opportunity to reach such a large audience.

“I encourage everyone to watch this compelling public service announcement and to learn more about the effects of domestic violence and sexual assault and what you can do to help stop these senseless crimes.”

The California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP), a division of the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board (VCGCB), provides compensation for victims of violent crime who are injured or threatened with injury. Among the crimes covered are domestic violence, child abuse, sexual and physical assault, homicide, robbery, and vehicular manslaughter.

If a person meets eligibility criteria, CalVCP will compensate many types of services when the costs are not covered by other sources. Eligible services include medical and dental care, mental health services, income loss, funeral expenses, rehabilitation and relocation. Funding for CalVCP comes from restitution fines and orders, penalty assessments levied on persons convicted of crimes and traffic offenses, and matching federal funds. The program is not taxpayer funded.
