Advocates at Victim Outreach Inc. (VOI), both staff and volunteers, ensure victims of crime and trauma receive needed support, information and referrals to help them recover and heal.

When asked, “How can you do this work? It must be so hard!’, our response is this – “We cannot do anything about what’s already happened, but we can do something about what happens next!.”

With the help of police, grants and private funding, VOI has helped nearly 5,000 people this year alone, in the eight Jefferson County communities we serve.

Your donation, this Giving Tuesday, will Help us Make A Difference in the lives of people who need and deserve a helping hand.

What does your donation support?
  • Fund the training, supervision and support of our incredible team of volunteers who logged 17,000+ hours last year and responded to 35% of our calls, including “middle of the night” responses.
  • Pay for professional advocates who serve as every victim’s bridge to the resources and information that helps them understand their rights, navigate the criminal justice process, feel safer and stronger and get the restitution they need to move on with their lives.
  • Update critical IT support systems used by staff and volunteers to assist victims and identify resources. Tracking who we serve and what we do is essential for reporting to funders, and none of this happens without updated, cutting edge technological systems.

For over 20 years, Jefferson Center has been the facilitating agency of the Suicide Prevention Coalition, a community collaboration of stakeholders from Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin Counties, Colorado, addressing suicide prevention issues in their communities. One of the goals of Jefferson Center’s suicide prevention program is to recruit “gatekeepers” in the community to participate in suicide prevention training classes.
