Victims of Crime & Domestic Violence Services program is consistent with the person-centered approach that is at the heart of our center’s philosophy and culture. Our services to victims of crime and domestic violence vary with the needs of each individual. Furthermore; Crime Victims and domestic violence provides services and support to people with all disabilities including those previously unserved or underserved because of: barriers associated with disability; language and cultural barriers; a fear of disclosure and desire for anonymity; feelings of isolation and despondency; a lack of information about and understanding of the peer services, community resources and tools for personal empowerment that are actually available.
Services Offered by the Program
As circumstances warrant, services can include crisis interventions; assistance with filing compensation claims; referrals to safe havens; Personal advocacy; Criminal Justice advocacy and support; Benefits Advocacy; Fair hearings Advocacy; Individual Counseling; Support Groups & Workshops; Victims’ Rights Education.
Individuals seeking the above services need to have one of the following documents: a police report or a court case stating that they are victims of a crime.
