Through our victim advocacy program, JCADA can assist clients with many other needs that fall outside of traditional legal or clinical support.

This includes:

  • Assistance using language interpretation services;
  • Assistance applying for public assistance programs that address housing, medical, or transportation concerns;
  • Court accompaniment;
  • Assistance preparing victim impact statements;
  • Case management;
  • Financial planning; and
  • Assistance with basic needs (e.g. referrals to food banks or other charities).

At this time, only individuals who are currently a client of the clinical or the legal program are eligible for victim advocacy services. Individuals calling specifically regarding victim advocacy services will be redirected to one of JCADA’s partner agencies who can better serve the caller’s needs.
