Victim Assistance 

For 25 years, Lao Family’s Asian American Special Victim Assistance Program, in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Emergency Service, has been providing responsive support to limited English-speaking Southeast Asian crime victims in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Helping new arrivals to rebuild their lives, we expanded these services to Sacramento County in 2008. Bi-lingual counselors work closely with victims to file reports and witness statements, process paperwork with law agencies, and ensure the immediate needs of the children and families of victims are addressed. Specific services include: 

  • Court-related support
  • Crisis prevention and intervention
  • Emergency services
  • Translation and interpretation
  • Assistance securing State compensation for victim’s family
  • Counseling services
  • Criminal justice support and advocacy
  • Community outreach and crime prevention education
  • Resource Referrals
