The reality of becoming a victim of a crime is a harsh one. In addition to experiencing mental anguish, oftentimes, victims encounter financial challenges as a result of the crime. While the Maryland Criminal Injuries Compensation Board provides financial assistance to cover major expenses such as funeral bills and lost wages, not all losses are covered. Additional funding for victim services generally comes from a variety of state and local resources, but can only be used to assist victims where criminal charges are pending against the perpetrator of the underlying crime.
There is a gap in funding for victims in the immediate aftermath of a criminal incident where no charges have been filed. The fund is available to victims of domestic violence, robbery, assaults, child abuse, and sexual assault; as well as families affected by homicide who meet the criteria.
The fund covers expenses such as replacing broken windows and locks, stolen property, crime scene clean up, and medical treatment. In order to continue to provide this type of assistance, the Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City must raise money to maintain this independent fund. To support these fundraising efforts, the office hosts the annual Winter Solstice Benefit.
