Helping Victims Break Through Barriers

Traumatic events can impact some for years — even decades — after the event. The counseling and therapeutic services offered by Center for Victims strive to lessen the negative impacts by empowering victims to understand the trauma they are experiencing, to find new ways of coping and to move toward healing.


 

For 42 years, Center for Victims has provided our community with lifesaving services to victims of all violent crime.

As we mourn the tragic mass shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue and plan for the days ahead, Center for Victims will continue its commitment to the region and to providing healing from trauma, support to victims and social change for a more peaceful community.
 


 

The moment after a crime occurs, Center for Victims is there for you. Our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline, 1/866-644-2882, will begin working with you on crisis counseling, safety planning and receiving protective shelter. In the aftermath of crime, it’s important to know victims have rights — Center for Victims’ staff will help you learn and understand yours.

In events of crisis, crisis counseling is always immediately provided to the community to help manage stressors and stabilize crises. Ongoing support will continue to be offered to individuals, families and others through group treatment, art and music therapy.

In addition, we understand that victims of crime are not used to navigating the Criminal Justice System, and we don’t expect you to be. We’ll appoint you a Victim Advocate who will come with you to any court hearings or appointments, explain what is going on and help you make the best decisions for yourself and your family.

We hope you and your family are never impacted by crime — but if you are, we’ll be here to help.
