Victim Outreach, Inc. (VOI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our Mission is to promote the healing of people impacted by crime and trauma. We support victims of crime and other traumatic events, empowering them to access resources that protect their rights and promote safety, healing, and hope. We provide crisis intervention, information about victim's rights and the criminal justice system, and offer referrals to help those affected deal with the resulting trauma and life changes. Our services continue through the criminal justice process and for as long as we are needed.   

Our Vision is that people impacted by crime and trauma will lead healthy, productive, and inspired lives. 

Our Values are Advocacy, Healing, Empowerment, Justice, and Ethics. 

VOI services are free and voluntary.  You do not have to have a pending criminal case to receive services from VOI.

VOI Services:

  • 24/7 Advocacy hotline
  • On-scene response
  • Follow-up services
  • Crisis intervention
  • Risk assessment and safety planning
  • Information regarding victims’ rights
  • Legal process support
  • Referrals and resources
  • Assistance to prevent re-victimization
  • Victim compensation and other emergency financial support

VOI victim advocates have “limited confidentiality”.  Advocates do not have confidentiality regarding statements made by victims and witnesses that are related to the case that is being investigated. Additionally, advocates are mandated reporters of child abuse, elder abuse and of concerns that a person is a danger to him/herself or others.

Crime Victim Compensation

The Crime Victim Compensation (CVC) program provides financial assistance to victims of violent crime. CVC can help with a variety of costs associated with the aftermath of a crime, which can sometimes include medical and dental care, mental health support, loss of income, crime scene cleaning services, and burial expenses. Victim Compensation is an application process and awards cannot be guaranteed.
