Individual Advocacy

Survivors Pathway is committed to providing the necessary assistance, guidance, and psychological support that survivors of violent crimes may need to successfully achieve justice. Navigating and accessing the justice system can be in some aspects difficult to understand, especially when the victims/survivors are experiencing the emotional impact of trauma, feeling unsafe or isolated. Access to supportive agencies, immigration services, and other needed legal recourses can also be complicated.
