January is National Stalking Awareness Month

Ordinarily, we post information regarding our services and how we assist in clean up of death, trauma, suicides and more.  This week it's important that we notice that "Stalking" is a crime and more frequently ending in tragic situations that require our services.

We wanted to share some information from Victims of that give you an overview of the support that these great organizations offer to victims and their families.  Organizations like these offer various types of assistance to victims and those in need, ranging from support groups, financial assistance for clean up of crime and death scenes to preventative information that brings awareness to our communities.

Help for Crime Victims

The National Center for Victims of Crime has a number of resources available to assist victims of crime. Our new Connect Directory provides contact information for victim service providers throughout the country. (Please note that the National Center's Crime Victim Helpline (800-FYI-CALL) is no longer in service).

Connect Directory

The National Center's Connect Directory provides a fast and easy way for victims to locate service providers specializing in specific areas of victimization in a wide variety of jurisdictions throughout the country. Users enter information into a simple form which is used to pull up contact information for service providers nearby who can help.

Get Help Bulletins

GetHelp Bulletins provide information on a wide range of topics, including the impact of crime, victims' rights, and the criminal and civil justice processes. The bulletins also include resources for victims, their families, and friends.

Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime

The U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), provides an online directory of Victim Services throughout the country. OVC also provides information about victim assistance and compensation programs available in communities around the country.

Additional Resources

Civil Litigation

The National Crime Victim Bar Association is a network of attorneys and allied professionals dedicated to facilitating civil actions brought by crime victims. Crime victims may be able to file civil lawsuits against perpetrators and responsible third parties for the damages the victims suffered as a result of the crime.

Death and Trauma Scene clean up is an emotionally draining task and something we wish our clients didn't have to experience. It's our goal to help ease the emotional distress by providing professional, compassionate services that are performed by trained technicians. We're available to immediate cleaning and restoration processes immediately after an incident and are dedicated to returning scenes that we clean to a pre-incident condition that is safe and sanitary.

If you find yourself or someone you know needing our services, please Contact Us immediately and we'll dispatch a technical crew to assist you with the details.
