A crime can have severe effects on a victim. Weeks, even months after the event, a victim may be still experiencing emotional problems, which can lead to feelings of guilt, frustration, and anger. Casa de la Familia is dedicated to help those victims, as well as their families, who have suffered an emotional injury as a result of a crime. Our on staff case management team works closely with victims' advocates and mental health providers to ensure that victims are aware and are able to take advantage of community services.
