We provide a wealth of services to help people navigate through the aftermath of a victimization or trauma.
Support Victim Assistance Program by donating, hosting a speaker, or volunteering.
The purpose of our agency is to provide 24-hour crisis intervention, advocacy, and education to victims of crime and trauma and the professional community who serves this population. There’s never a fee for our services.
We help all victims of crime or tragedy regardless of age, sex, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, or ability to speak English.
Victim Assistance Program staff, interns, and volunteers share the responsibility of providing victims with support through the 24-hour hotline & website chat. Because our agency serves victims of all crime types, those answering the hotline are trained to offer compassionate and nonjudgmental crisis intervention, emotional support, safety plans, information on victims’ legal rights, community referrals as well as education on common reactions crime victims may encounter.
Rely on us when you need support, advocacy, or intervention in the wake of crime or trauma.
We recognize family members and friends of victims have needs too. If you need support simply call our hotline or chat with one of our advocates.
First responders should call our hotline when they need an advocate to respond to the scene of an incident, to help at a hospital or medical examiner’s office.
