Crime Victims Service Center

We have  a new advocate joining this program.  Please welcome Linda to her new role as the Crime Victim Services Advocate.  Linda will be here to support you in processing your feelings about being a crime victim, making a plan for future safety, support with the legal system, and applications for Crime Victims Compensation.  Not everyone who experiences a crime wants to contact the legal system, that is an individual choice.  We are here to support you no matter what.

If you are a victim of a crime,  contact us 24-hours a day, Toll-Free, at 1-800-743-7855.  Business hours are 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday-Friday.   For west end residents, our  local number is  360-374-6411.   After hours emergency callers may also call Toll-Free to "Families & Friends" at 1-800-346-7555.

Advocacy
