"Victim Assistance Program volunteer mentors provide a genuine friendship and role model for a child, as each child has an inherent right to be treated with dignity."
Victim Assistance volunteer mentors provide a one-on-one supportive relationship that will be maintained weekly for 6 months, to enhance continuity and stabilization for the child. Mentors are dedicated to assisting children who are healing from past trauma and provide support in the least intrusive, most comfortable manner possible. They work to increase self-esteem through positive interactions and establish empowerment, when appropriate, for the child.
All mentors are required to complete a state required 40-hour training program, submit to a complete background check, and pass a screening interview with a therapist.
For more information on this program please contact the CJC Victim Assistance Coordinators:

We would be very pleased to serve your child!
