Services for Primary and Secondary Victims
Victim Outreach Incorporated offers comprehensive support services to victims of crime and/or trauma. Primary clients include those who have been impacted by criminal acts or non-crime related traumatic events such as suicide, SIDS death, fatal car accident or natural disaster.
Services are also provided to secondary victims - family members or witnesses who were seriously impacted by the trauma.
Crisis & Trauma
A crisis reaction is a normal reaction to an abnormal event. The sort of events that can cause serious distress can include involvement in/or witnessing:
- Personal trauma, such as abuse, sexual assault, robbery or burglary
- Suicide, severe injury, sudden death (by accident, homicide or natural causes) of family or friends
- Events that happen to the person’s community, such as fire, flood, terrorism
Our service area includes:
- Mountain View
- Wheat Ridge
- Colorado School of Mines
- And victims with no local advocate who are referred to VOI
