The Tree of Angels event recognizes that the holiday season is a particularly difficult time for crime victims and their families whose lives forever have been touched by violent crime and is often a poignant reminder of the loss of a loved one or lives changed through the senseless violent act of another. This special event honors surviving victims of crime and their families and will include special musical selections and the lighting of candles signifying Hope, Peace and Healing.
Families and friends are invited to bring an angel ornament to place on a special holiday Christmas tree. This ceremony and the agencies represented support all victims of crime with compassion and assistance to recover from their trauma, pain and sorrow. The Tree of Angels event originated in 1991 in Austin by People Against Violent Crime and the concept has led to 34 similar events throughout Texas.
