About Us


Ann and I are grateful to Cheryl Kerivan, Coordinator of Social Justice and Outreach Ministry of St. Patrick Catholic Community for countless hours of research and invaluable effort; to Father Eric Tellez, Pastor extraordinaire; and Mary Permoda, Director of Pastoral Activities who was so willing to give of her time to help others.

Iulia Taranu and Kristin Epperson, both majoring in criminology and criminal justice at Arizona State University, volunteered untold hours providing research on violence aganist men, teen violence, bullying, adoption resources and animal cruelty. Both serve on the Arizona Attorney General's Anti-Violence Commission and intern for the U.S Anti-Violence commission. They are in a Criminal Justice Honors Society called Alpha Phi Sigma and also in the Golden Key International Honour Society


We are also grateful to thousands of law enforcement, prosecutors and other professionals and volunteers that labor to make the world a safer place; and made Justice Depot possible by their years of work on solutions to domestic violence and sexual assault.

For our family, this is a culmination of nearly 25 years of working to help those who have suffered. Our mission is to create America's Largest Warehouse of Resources on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Information for Prevention and for Victims. 

In 2001, after the murder of the 16-year-old daughter of a friend, we
http://www.usrecords.us/, a criminal records search firm dedicated to helping businesses and individuals protect themselves from violent criminals. The majority of the information on that site is free; and we link to INTERPOL, the world's largest international police organization with188 member countries.
