Colorado rose to the occasion on Colorado Gives Day 2013, with their support of non-profit organizations and their causes - Over $20 million dollars from nearly 88,000 donations! That money will support so many worthwhile endeavors and for that we are truly grateful.
The added exposure Colorado Gives Day brings to VOI resulted in twice the donations from twice the donors in 2012. VOI received $5,272 on December 10th, 2013, money that will be carefully spent to help victims of crime get the support and resources they need and deserve.
With so many worthwhile causes and organizations asking for help on the same day, VOI is honored that so many people chose to support ours. Thank you.

Services for Primary and Secondary Victims
Victim Outreach offers comprehensive support services to victims of crime and/or trauma. Primary clients include those who have been impacted by criminal acts or non-crime related traumatic events such as suicide, SIDS death, fatal car accident or natural disaster.
Services are also provided to secondary victims - family members or witnesses who were seriously impacted by the trauma.
Crisis & Trauma
A crisis reaction is a normal reaction to an abnormal event. The sort of events that can cause serious distress can include involvement in/or witnessing:
- Personal trauma, such as abuse, sexual assault, robbery or burglary
- Suicide, severe injury, sudden death (by accident, homicide or natural causes) of family or friends
- Events that happen to the person’s community, such as fire, flood, terrorism
Our service area includes:
- Mountain View
- Wheat Ridge
- Colorado School of Mines
- And victims with no local advocate who are referred to VOI
If you were a victim of a crime in VOI's service area and need assistance, contact VOI at 303-202-2196. If you were victimized elsewhere, contact the law enforcement agency in the city where the crime occurred and ask to speak with someone in their victim services unit. You may find a list of local agencies and issue specific resources here. If you live in our service area but were a victim of a crime in another state or city, and need local support or resources, contact VOI for assistance.
Training & Collaboration with Agencies and Groups
In addition to direct service delivery VOI also engages in extensive training, networking and collaboration with other service providers, first responders and law enforcement agencies to further strengthen a coordinated and effective response to victims. Read more. . .
