Are you a
Local Official?

Many different resources can be utilized to bring trauma recovery centers to your constituents, including Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) funds, state victim compensation funds and private dollars. Talk to your VOCA administrator about the importance of comprehensive care for communities most harmed by crime and violence.

“[The Trauma Recovery Center] helps victims to be able to sit on the stand, provide grounding exercises to get through that process… It’s not uncommon to see trauma resurface, so we circle back to figure out how to best support victims.”
Delia Montiel, Victim Services Advocate Supervisor at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office
