Help for Victims

Are you or someone you know a victim of crime?

 

If so, we can assist you to navigate through the criminal justice system and advocate for your needs as a victim of crime.

Our services are designed to meet your needs as a crime victim and assist you in your journey from victim to survivor. These services include:

Statewide Hotline
