Every Victim Every Time
Crime Victim Conference
Every Victim, Every Time, Inc.
In 2006, a group of Brazos County advocates wanted to do "something more" for crime victims. They wanted to make a difference. A need was identified for low cost professional training concerning crime victim’s issues and services. As a group they met to plan and organize the first Every Victim, Every Time Conference held in April of 2007. The first conference had over 100 attendees. After almost 12 years, the conference has grown to over 800 attendees traveling from all over Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico and over 48 speakers from all over the country. The Every Victim, Every Time, Inc. conference committee is a conglomerate of over 20 agencies and individual community advocates in the Brazos Valley that work together throughout the year to plan, organize, finance and facilitate the Every Victim, Every Time Conference. The mission of the conference committee is to provide quality, low cost training in order to increase the knowledge of professionals responding to victims of violent crime. The EVET committee members advocate for victims of crime by educating the professionals in fields such as law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, social work, probation departments, medical field, child care agencies, healthcare agencies, mental health field, education, community advocacy - any and all professionals who may come into contact with a crime victim.
In 2015, Every Victim, Every Time became EVET, Inc. when we were awarded non-profit status and became a 501c3 organization.
