Victim Assistance Program’s COVID-19 Operations

Due to the coronavirus, clients are encouraged to connect via phone, chat, or text.

Walk in services have been suspended until further notice.


Beginning at 11:59 pm on 3.16.20, Victim Assistance Program’s services, will be altered to ensure we remain healthy enough to provide 24/7 on scene response to individuals and groups in the wake of a tragedy.

We are committed to decreasing staff and client’s exposure to the coronavirus by requiring our staff to work remotely. Our offices will be closed for an indefinite amount of time. Therefore, victims in need of support are encouraged to connect with us through one of the below options.

24 hour hotline

24 hour text messaging

24 hour online chat

As the only agency providing on scene response to Summit County victims of crime and trauma, we will continue to provide in person services upon request from local law enforcement, Summit Co. emergency management agency, EMS, and/or fire officials.

These times are trying for us all. Unfortunately, victims of crime and trauma will require greater assistance as these days unfold. Now is the time to educate others about our services and to ensure victims know we are only a phone call, text, or click away.
