Abstract

Witness Justice was established in 2001 by survivors, for survivors. The vision for Witness Justice is to address the gaps in service experienced by survivors of violence and trauma, no matter the nature of the incident, where or when the incident occurred, or whether a crime was ever reported. The organization, inspired by this vision, is now fueled by a diverse and talented group of survivors, advocates, experts, and volunteers. Witness Justice is unique in that the organization works directly with victims of all types of crime from communities all over the country to provide support and information, to promote physical and emotional healing, and to serve as a uniquely understanding presence and sounding board. Given the large disparity in services from city to city, county to county, and state to state, the importance of having a national program that addresses a survivorís needs and promotes equal opportunity for healing and justice is especially important.
