Mission Statement

The mission of Victim Outreach, Inc. is to promote the healing of people impacted by crime and trauma. Our vision is that people impacted by trauma lead healthy, productive and inspired lives.

Organization History

In the late 1970's, the public became outraged at how survivors of crime were treated, leading President Reagan to create a task force to study "the plight of victims". This task force recommended changes throughout the criminal justice system, including the creation of victim support services in police agencies across the country.

In 1986, following an assessment of existing services across Colorado's First Judicial District, Victim Outreach Information, Inc. (VOI) was created to provide much needed victim support services to smaller communities without sufficient resources to develop their own victim support programs.

Over the years, our agency and Executive Director have received many awards and much recognition. Due to our stellar reputation, we have grown to include the City of Arvada among the jurisdictions that we serve.

We expect the need for victim support services will remain strong. Law enforcement has now embraced the valuable assistance that can be provided by victim advocates and we have seen substantial increases in the number of victims referred to us.

Testimonials

"On the day of that senseless crime, our lives changed forever. Through the following hazy days, VOI Advocates were so kind and always there to help us understand what was happening with the police. I'd never dreamed of going through trials and having to testify against, or for, someone. You were there and sat with me in that courtroom, when otherwise, I would have had to sit alone." Family member of a homicide victim

"Perhaps most importantly I can recall the sounds of their voices every time I needed them. I remember never feeling alone in my grief. I remember feeling someone's hand on my shoulder when I though I couldn't possibly endure anymore." - from the wife of a homicide victim

"Just who are these people anyway? This was my thought on the day my life changed forever. You do not know you are going to need their help but, as it turns out, I am so very glad they were there every step of the way." From the daughter of a homicide victim
