Our mandate is to provide direct support, information, referral and education for victims of crime or tragedy until their own support systems are in place.
Central Alberta Victim & Witness Support Society provides services to the people of Blackfalds, Clive, Joffre, Springbrook, the Summer Village of Gull Lake, a large portion of Lacombe County, and a large portion of Red Deer County. Victim Support can be provided at the request of a police officer, a referral from another agency, detachment walk-in or phone inquiries. Trained Victim Support Advocates come to the immediate aid of those whose lives have been shattered by crime or tragedy. This may include someone who has been sexually assaulted, harassed, beaten, robbed, involved in a motor vehicle accident, who has experienced the sudden death of a loved one or whom has been the victim of a break in. The advocates provide immediate and direct support, compassion, a listening ear, and direction on obtaining support related services. All services are free and confidential. Advocates can provide court preparation and accompany victims to court, as well as track criminal proceedings for the victim, should it be required.
We assist in bridging the gap from hurt to hope to empower survivors of crime and tragedy to take control of their lives.
To equip clients to engage positively and productively in their community through our professional and compassionate provision of direct support, information, referral and education.
Pink Shirt Day February 26th
The theme for this year’s Pink Shirt Day is
“Lift each other up”;
a simple but powerful message encouraging us to look beyond our differences and celebrate the things that make us unique. When we lift each other up, we see past the things that separate us and see instead the things that unite us as people.
