Victim's Assistance Program Services
Your advocate will provide friendly, professional help as you deal with the criminal justice system. Advocates are not lawyers, but are familiar with the workings of the criminal justice system and the needs and rights of victims. We understand how crime can affect your life, and are here to help you deal with the emotional, financial, and legal needs you may have as the result of a crime. There are no fees. Our specific services include:
We will help you deal with the immediate emotional concerns you may have following a crime. For more extensive counseling needs, we can make referrals to specialized counselors and support groups.
Social Service Referral
Advocates can help you find a wide variety of social services, such as emergency housing, medical care, food, financial assistance, and language interpretation.
Information and Support
We will provide you information on your legal rights, and will update you on the investigation of your case. We can lend you support during court and trial proceedings, including interviews with attorneys.
If necessary, we can provide transportation to court hearings and other appointments related to the crime.
We will notify you of all relevant court proceedings, and will be with you in court should you be required to testify.
