Welcome our new Crisis and Referral Advocate volunteer, Ezri Noe! Ezri will be helping Victim Support Services by speaking to individuals hurt or harmed by crime that contact our Referral Line looking for services. She will provide crisis intervention, emotional support, safety planning, resources and more.

Ezri received her B.A. in Psychology from Northwest University in Kirkland and works as a Community Relations Manager where she assists in project development for community projects and charity-driven business models, develops management materials and protocols, and fosters social connection through social media outlets. In her personal time, Ezri enjoys gardening, yoga, listening to podcasts, and being creative! She has always loved the arts and is currently learning how to paint and draw. She has a lot of hobbies, but her favorite way to spend her free time is by surrounding herself with her friends, family, and cat, Tuffy.

When we asked Ezri what she is looking forward to the most about volunteering for VSS, she said, “I am looking forward to joining the team at Victim Support Services so that I can implement my passion for victim advocacy. I am eager to learn more about the legal system in Washington State so that I can assist individuals in accessing legal services, as well as other community sources, such as professional counseling. I see this volunteering experience as an opportunity to learn and apply my skills to help my community.

“My passion and interest in victim advocacy was ignited a few years ago when I first began listening to true crime podcasts that focused on partnership with victim’s families; these podcasts placed a heavy emphasis on empathy and sensitivity and advocated for victim rights. I continued this interest by completing an honors thesis titled True Crime Podcasts: Analyzing Ethical Principles, Advocacy, and Sensationalism. Now, my goal is to put my interests into action by becoming an advocate!”

Welcome to the team, Ezri! We thank you for volunteering your time with us.

Call Our 24-Hour Crisis Line

Speak with a trained advocate who can provide assistance with needs resulting from victimization.  Call by clicking below! 


"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

David Rose

Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.” 

Myrle Carner

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
