Kathy's Legacy collaborated with the San Diego District Attorney's office to establish Silver Lining, a support program for children of domestic victim homicide. The program enhances the existing Victim Advocacy Program to fulfill the needs of children experiencing the devastating murder of a parent via domestic violence.
Knowing that the advocacy program's ability to help surviving victims is significantly limited after adjudication, Silver Lining assists them and their guardians with needs that would otherwise go unmet. The program provides support for guardianships or adoption; therapy; dental and medical needs; and opportunities for normalcy that otherwise would be unaffordable, such as tutoring, recreation, museum visits, sporting fees, dance classes, and gym passes. Silver Lining sees to the basic yet critical needs of the silent, under-served victims of domestic violence homicide.
