Mother of murdered Alhambra High student works to help other victims and their families

Three years ago gang members shot to death a 16-year-old Alhambra High student, Sammantha Salas. Her mother, Jeanette Chavez, has taken the pain she endured in the aftermath of the terrible event and is trying to channel it toward helping other victims of crimes, the Whittier Daily News reports.

She founded the Unity and Peace Sammantha Salas Scholarship Fund, is a board member of Justice for Homicide Victims, and and is one of the founders of the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers. On Saturday, Chavez will help organize a crime victims' clinic at the Pasadena Police Department from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

"When this happened with Sammantha, I didn't know … what to do. I was so lost," Chavez told the Daily News. "Now that I know, I help those families that need that kind of guidance It's an ugly feeling. You feel hopeless, helpless. Keeping Sammantha's case in the public eye was very important."

The Daily News reports to RSVP or get more information on the free crime victims' clinic, contact [email protected] or call 310-457-0030. Seating is limited and RSVPs are due by Wednesday.
