Alexandria, City of Alexandria, Virginia

Virginia Lionhearts Alexandria is Lionheart Society’s longest running active program. Virginia Lionhearts was established in January 2015, and awarded the Alexandria Police Foundation the first Lion Heart Society program grant. The seed grant sent a detective to a national training conference in spring 2015. The City of Alexandria and the Chief of Police were able to match the Virginia Lionhearts grant, sending two detectives to the conference. Currently, Virginia Lionhearts is accepting Letters of Requests from the Alexandria Domestic Violence Intervention Program for the 2017 Lion Heart Society Virginia Lionhearts grant.
