VALOR greatly appreciates the confidence and support of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, especially Celestine Williams, who served as our Federal Project Officer. We are also grateful for the outstanding work of our consultants, Christine Edmunds, Anne Seymour, Jann Taylor, and Kathylynn Beiro, who ensured the completion of this project in time for an early January distribution of the 1996 National Crime Victims' Rights Week Resource Guide to the field.

We would also like to recognize Mothers Against Drunk Driving for the contribution of a full-size color poster that will be distributed with each 1996 Resource Guide. Finally, we appreciate the many individuals and organizations who shared their ideas with us so that we could share them with you.
