The Mary Byron Project was established in 2000 in memory of the young woman whose tragic murder led to the creation of automated crime victim notification technologies. As a nationally recognized thought leader on domestic violence, the Mary Byron Project cultivates and supports efforts that extend beyond crisis management to attack the root causes of this epidemic and help build safer, healthier communities.

The Mary Byron Project would like to thank all of the businesses and people who participated in the 12th Annual Mary Byron Project Golf Scramble and Charitable Poker Tournament at Wildwood Country Club on September 23. The weather was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for a better day to spend on the golf course.
We would also like to thank our wonderful volunteers. Without you, this event would not have been possible. We appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to this event and the organization.
Seven years after their daughter's murder and six years after the creation of automated victim notification technology (VINE), Pat and John Byron spearheaded the creation of the Mary Byron Project, an organization dedicated to finding innovations like VINE that save lives.
The Mary Byron Project’s Celebrating Solutions Awards honor innovative programs that demonstrate promise in ending the generational cycle of domestic violence. We select programs that can serve as models for the nation and offer cash awards of $10,000 in recognition of their pioneering efforts. These are awards for accomplishments, not grants for future projects. Recipients are not required to render any further services as a condition of receiving a Celebrating Solutions Award.
The Roth Award has been created specifically for programs that address the needs of underserved populations. These programs provide services to those who are identified as such based on characteristics that include age, race, ethnicity, gender, faith, disabilities, low socio-economic status, non-English speaking, sexual preference, and surprisingly, victims from economically-comfortable suburban areas who traditionally do not know how to avail themselves of services or who are too ashamed to find them. In general, there is a lack of resources for these specific populations, or the individuals have difficulty accessing available resources.
Since its inception, The Mary Byron Project has donated more than $600,000 to nearly 35 organizations across the country that have been able to demonstrate innovative, proven solutions. With your contributions, we can help even more!
