Victims

Survivors of violent crime endure financial, social, mental, and physical pain and suffering, which greatly reduces quality of life. Our team works collaboratively with jurisdictions to understand the experiences and effects of victimization, increase access to victim services, and improve systemic responses through restitution and victim compensation programs. These efforts help lead to recovery and provide pathways to healing.
