Victim Services of Leeds & Grenville will endeavor to help reduce victim trauma by providing emotional and practical support, referrals and resources after a crime or tragedy has occurred. We will also provide a single point of entry to other programs and services within a victim’s community, assisting with navigating the system and thereby helping to reduce an individual’s sense of helplessness, confusion, and stress.
Victim Services of Leeds & Grenville (formerly VCARS) is a community-based program working in partnership with police, fire and EMS, child protection (CAS), Victim Witness Assistance Program and the local women’s shelter. We are a 24 / 7 agency that provides immediate, confidential short-term crisis intervention services, practical assistance, information, referrals and emotional support to persons affected by crime, tragedy and / or disaster.
Volunteers and staff provide assistance to individuals, families, friends, witnesses and/ or groups at the request of emergency services personnel, community services and self-referrals in order to meet an individual’s unique needs; to help lessen the trauma of the experience and to help people cope with the longer term impact of what has occurred.
Crisis assistance is provided by staff and by volunteers who are carefully selected, screened and specially trained to work in their community. Victim Services of Leeds & Grenville are committed to treating individuals with courtesy, compassion, dignity and respect.
