From our hearts to yours, a BIG offering of thanks to crime victim service providers, including Roper Academy Alumni Association (RAAA) who continue to bring comfort and calm to the lives of crime victims and their families, as well as kindred support to one another. ~ Wishing everyone peace and good health!
The purpose of the RAAA (formerly, The Victim Services Professional Network [VSPN]) is to provide a vehicle by which Alumni may assist in the attainment of the goals set forth by the Academy. As such the goals of the Alumni Association are:
As such, the Alumni Association has created a set of committees designed to support these goals. A description of each committee is listed in the left-hand column. RAAA welcomes the active involvement of its members and as such is always looking for more Alums to serve on these committees so they can share their talents and knowledge with their fellow peers.

2022 Adopt a Family
On behalf of the Officers of the RAAA Board, we want to send out heartfelt THANK YOU to the amazing Roper Alumni who made this year’s Adopt A Family such a huge success. Your generous donations allowed us to help four families have a great Christmas this year, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Each family received $225 in Amazon E-gift cards for a total of $900.
Shout out to Jessica Foster for spearheading this years’ campaign and making the holiday brighter for each adoptee.
Thank you for your generous contributions! ❤️
A little about our four chosen families....
* A grandmother who is raising her two young grandchildren after their father, her son died this year
* A single mother who is currently unemployed and looking for work. She has two children. Her son was killed this year, and she and her daughter have since had to move
* A mother with two young children who is going through a divorce/custody case after experiencing severe domestic violence. Her two children have health complications, which limit how much she can work due to their needs
* A young, single mother who is in the process of finishing trade school. Her brother helped to take care of her and her young child. She lost her brother to a homicide this year, so she is currently looking for work while finishing school
