Victim services

How toget help

Upon meeting a victim for the first time and completing all intake paperwork with them, a determination will be made between the advocate and client about which tier will be their starting point. The Tier Program is targeted for a 2 year completion but we take consideration for individual needs and circumstances.

How it works

Guidance every step of the way.

Healing & Opportunities

The Fourth Step: Connections to Establish Survivor Leadership

In Tier 4, our main focus is connections to establish survivor leadership:

• Focusing on volunteer opportunities, writing and sharing lived-experience stories, survivor leader speaker, and Survivor Support Group facilitator.

• A Tier 4 client has completed goals for sustainability and skills to be self-sufficient. Time allocated to this tier is approximately 5 months. We will continue to maintain friendship and support as needed.

The Third Step: Healing and Self Sustainability

In Tier 3, our main focus is the hard work of healing and self sustainability. We also assist in building community and support systems:

• Focusing on long term housing, continued trauma-informed counseling, continued recovery plan, social skills, community involvement, life skills such as cooking, hygiene, self-care, parenting, financial stability with credit recovery, paying off debt, building a savings plan, and justice advocacy.

• In Tier 3, we will meet with clients once a month and at least one meeting in person each quarter. Time allocated to this tier is approximately 12 months.

The Second Step: Self Sustainability

In Tier 2, our main focus is the transition to self sustainability:

• Focusing on transitional living, sustainable food resources, trauma-informed counseling, a recovery plan, legal advocacy, medical/dental/vision, Survivor Support Groups, transportation/mobility, driver’s license, vocation or education, budget and child care.

• In Tier 2, we will meet with clients bi-monthly and at least once a month in person. Time allocated to this tier is approximately 6 months.

The First Step: Providing Basic Needs

In Tier 1, our main focus is to meet basic needs through Hub of HOPE or through community partners.

• Focusing on getting food, clothing, shelter, emergency care, identification documents, and health insurance.  We believe this is the foundation needed to begin the healing journey.

• In Tier 1, we meet with clients weekly, either in person or over the phone, but meet in person with them at least once a month. Time allocated to this tier is approximately 30 days.
