The Victim Advocate Program is a volunteer based program serving unincorporated Adams County. It is designed to provide crisis intervention to victims of crime. Crime victims and witnesses often suffer emotional trauma, fear, confusion, and financial loss. Victim Advocates are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond within one hour to a designated location.
If you have a question about a person in custody, please call the Adams County Sheriff's Office (303) 654-1850 or Inmate Information (303) 655-3495. If you have questions or need assistance, you may contact the Victim Advocate Office by telephone or by email: victimadvocates@co.adams.co.us.

Denver Victim Advocates (http://www.denverda.org/DA_Programs/victim_info/victim_advocates.htm)
Being victimized and going through the court system can be difficult and confusing. Trained victim advocates can give you support, information and referrals.
The Office of the Denver District Attorney provides a Victim Advocate Program for your benefit. People who care about you and your involvement in the criminal justice system staff this program. Their goal is to help lessen the impact of being a victim of crime or a witness to a crime.
A victim advocate can give you information about how the court system works and the current status of your case.

The Coalition actively participates on numerous statewide boards and committees to influence initiatives that affect survivors in Colorado.
