“Other community partners serve special populations of victims, such as domestic violence and sexual assault and those who have lost loved ones to homicide,” said Kimberly McCoy, director of the Victim Witness Assistance Unit in the DA’s Office. “But many victims of property crimes, for example, are traumatized by the perpetrator’s invasion of their privacy, yet are unable to obtain any help due to the limited availability of state resources for these crimes. These victims also deserve our assistance and trauma-informed response.”
Preference will be given to anyone who has little to no options for counseling, but any victim of crime can call to discuss whether he or she is eligible. Counselors will accept appointments two days per week. For appointments, call 770-528-3047.
