Victim Assistance Program

The Victim Assistance Program is dedicated to helping residents who have been victimized or otherwise traumatized within our community. The Victim Assistance Program consists of one coordinator, two staff advocates and 25 community volunteers. 

At any given moment you might find a volunteer at a residence providing crises intervention to the parents of a runaway teen, in a high school talking about dating violence, or accompanied by a uniformed deputy making a death notification.

The Victim Assistance Program has a two-fold mission. First and foremost, volunteers provide support to the victims and their families during the chaos following a traumatic event. They are resourceful and able to assess a situation so the best possible assistance may be provided to the victims. Secondly, members assist with the emotional needs of the victim and family so that deputies, investigators and other emergency personnel may perform their duties. Program members serve as liaison between the victim and the people who are charged with the responsibility of investigating the scene.

Many times, a victim’s healing process is helped with the intervention of a professional. If you would like to talk to someone about your victimization, call the Victim Assistance Program at 720-874-4038 for a referral, or call any of the agencies listed below. They are dedicated to making sure your needs are met.

All volunteers attend the Victim Assistance Training Academy and are required to have a background check, which includes a polygraph.
