Support Resources

Why A Support Program?

If you are a victim or witness to a crime, it can take a toll on your well-being. Support groups and other resources are available to offer any help that you need. Review the list below for a support program that fits your needs.

If you need immediate help, call 911.

"One of the most common difficulties of survivors is related to feelings of being completely alone. Exposure to other individuals in support groups who have gone through the same experience will provide a great sense of relief for survivors." (From the Parents of Murdered Children training manual)
