The Role of Victim Services


Victim Services provides immediate emotional and practical assistance to all victims of crime and tragic circumstance, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout Eastern Algoma District.

Victim Services is not a counseling service or a phone distress line. Trained Crisis Responders provide emotional support and practical help to those victimized by crime and tragedy.

Our primary goal is to help immediately, 24 hours a day, right at the time of the crisis and then act as a bridge to other community services which can provide long term support.

Assistance is provided free of charge by trained Crisis Responders in cooperation with local police, fire and hospitals
