Victim Services ImageWe hope you are never the victim of a crime or other tragedy.  But if you are, ask the responding deputy for a VAP.  Our on-call Victim Advocate Program volunteer will respond quickly to offer the much-needed support in the immediate aftermath of the incident.

It is known that victims of crime and other trauma are greatly impacted by the early intervention that a Law Enforcement Advocate can offer.   While family and friends can be the long-term support system for a victim, they often do not have immediate access to community resources.  The VAP can provide guidance regarding the criminal justice process, housing when necessary for the safety of a victim, explanations for confusing law enforcement procedures, applications for medical or counseling expenses, and much more.  Their compassion and services can get a person on the road from victim to survivor.
