Abstract: Bruce Cook of the Crime Victims Advocacy Council explains how victim services and support inform victims of their rights and services and enable them to move through a difficult time instead of being alone in their grief, anger, and confusion. Thomas Alessandro of the Witness Aid Services Unit describes the importance of working with crime victims. Casa de los Ninos works with children who have been physically or sexually abused. Wayne Fontin reports that Trauma Intervention Programs, Inc., describes how volunteers help victims experience healing memories rather than hurtful memories. The Victim Services Center of Jacksonville, Fl., hires employees who have a genuine concern for people and regard all victims as special. Helga Asizkan of the Tri-County M.A.D.D. focuses on issues related to driving under the influence of alcohol. The Round Valley Indian Tribes’ S.T.O.P. Violence Against Indian Women Program received a special award for innovations in services to victims in Indian Country.
