Victim Assistance

What do I do if I am a victim of a crime? Victims of crime often feel that their victimization continues

into the court system. They find themselves confronted by an often frustrating process which they do not

fully understand. The L&GM chaplain can help with resource information, counseling, court appearance,

procedural information, transportation assistance and escort to the courtroom.
