Juan began to serve and to assist victims and their families as an investigator for the Hidalgo County District Attorney’s Office where his advocacy for Victims and Families of Domestic Violence turned into a passion. Cano saw victims and their loved ones enter and exit through the revolving door of abuse and neglect. He identified a need for more safety, more access, more accountability, through what he witnessed firsthand, he identified a way to place it all in the palm of the Victims’ hand.
