Victim Assistance Unit
Our advocates respond to victims of crimes and family survivors in cases of violent and/or sudden death. Advocates address emotional issues, confusion, and trauma. Advocates also make long-term referrals to help victims get on the path of recovery. They also act as a liaison between the criminal justice system and the victim.
The program is supported by staff advocates and dedicated victim assistance volunteers.
An advocate is always available for crisis response.
