Family Advocate

Advocates are primarily responsible for provision of information, support, and advocacy services to victims, witnesses, and their families throughout the criminal justice process. The advocate provides information on victim’s rights (including victim compensation) and protective matters, as well as general support for child victims and their family. The VWA updates the family after the investigation is complete and, if the case proceeds to court the VWA updates the family on court proceedings and assists with trial preparation.
