Our program assists people in crisis in the immediate aftermath of crime or tragedy. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
While each person’s reaction to trauma is highly individual, people who have been victims of a crime or tragedy often share a sense of having lost control over their lives.
In the initial stages of any crisis, most people want to speak to someone who will understand their immediate need for information pertaining to personal safety and options available to them. Our intervention ensures the victim is safe, supported, and connected to the appropriate services. Referrals to other community resources provide on-going support. The immediacy of our service allows us to aid in mitigating the harmful effects of trauma on the victim and their loved ones.
