Victim Crisis Response Program
Victim Crisis Response Program assists people in crisis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week in the immediate aftermath of crime or tragedy.
We provide on-site or over the phone crisis intervention. While each person’s reaction to trauma is highly individual, people who have been victims of a crime or tragedy often share a sense of having lost control over their lives. In the initial stages of any crisis, most people want to speak to someone who will understand their immediate need for information pertaining to: personal safety and options available to them. Our intervention ensures the victim is safe, emotionally stabilized and connected to the appropriate support services. Referrals to community agencies that offer on-going support are also provided.
Victim Services is unique in that we are the only agency in Toronto that provides: immediate on-site crisis, trauma, safety and support services to victims of crime and sudden tragedies. The immediacy of this service allows us to aid in mitigating the harmful effects of trauma on the victim and their loved ones.
