24-Hour Crisis Intervention

Our advocates help people who have been victimized by crime or experienced a traumatic event. We help normalize victims’ emotions, and we assess basic needs such as clothing, food, and shelter. We also provide information about the investigative and judicial processes.

According to a study conducted by the National Institute of Justice, “When advocates offer coordinated, early, victim-focused interventions, victims are more likely to participate in court-proceedings, access community-based advocacy programs, and report decreases in distress, post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms, depression, and fear.”

Legion Media has produced numerous videos to enable Victim Assistance to “tell our story.” We are enormously grateful to Legion Media and our clients for their willingness to help us spread the word about our critical services.
