Why Do We Help ?
CDVS helps so that the victim can cope with the impact of crime, tragedy or disaster. We will be there to lessen the effects of trauma and crisis and to encourage the victim to connect with other services for longer-term assistance and support. We wish to make victims aware of programs that provide immediate financial assistance subsequent to serious criminal acts and to improve their safety. We also help because we wish to increase awareness of victimization issues. Finally, we help so that police and other emergency service providers can leave a scene.
