Victims Resource Center Counselor/Advocates have been helping victims of crime for 45 years. Here is how one victim described their experience, “What I found helpful about services is the continued emotional support, continued support for my children and me during the numerous court hearings. The comfort and calmness of counselor, her knowledge base, and her impact were all helpful.”

Victims Resource Center staff are dedicated to the mission and passionately committed to serving crime victims. This is reflected in the quality of services that are provided as each individual is treated with dignity and respect.

But this is not enough. Your financial support is needed to make sure that the organization is there for all future victims. Find out more about our services and prevention programs.
