Valley Trauma Center

Victims of Crime Counseling

Working in conjunction with the California Victim Compensation Program, Strength United has developed a specialized counseling program to assist victims of violent crimes and their loved ones cope with the traumatic event. Recognizing that the impact of a violent crime can affect caregivers, family members and significant others we offer services to each affected person.

Services include:

  • 24–Hour Crisis Line
  • 24–Hour Accompaniment to police departments, forensic exams, court and follow-up interviews
  • Advocacy
  • Case management
  • Crisis intervention
  • Assessment
  • Individual counseling
  • Couples counseling
  • Family counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Assistance in obtaining restraining orders
  • Safety planning
  • Help with the application for the Victims Compensation Program, which can help pay bills and expenses that result from certain violent crimes. 
  • Information and referrals


Strength United’s counselors are dedicated to providing individual, family and group counseling in a skilled and compassionate manner.  In addition to providing you with services, they can also meet with your loved ones, who may also be struggling with their own reactions to the assault.

If you have experienced sexual violence now or in the past, the center offers free sessions.  If you have been the victim of a violent crime, we can assist you in determining if you are eligible for the Victim Compensation Program, which may cover the cost of counseling.
