Wyoming Division of Victim Services
http://victimservices.wyoming.gov/

What services do victim service programs have?

Most victim service programs offer:

Counseling after the crime to help you deal with the immediate emotional trauma.

Referrals to other agencies for services not available at the program.

Follow-up counseling for emotional, financial or work problems related to the crime.

Emergency help with housing, clothing, food, transportation and medical care.

Help filing for compensation through the Wyoming Crime Victim Compensation Program (CVCP).

If eligible you may be compensated for medical or dental bills, loss of income or support, and funeral and burial expenses.

Support as the criminal case moves through the system.

Explain the criminal justice process.

Make sure you have a support person when you go to court.

Give you information about the case.

Help you get your property back if law enforcement held it as evidence.

Help prepare you for when the offender is released.

If you want, advocates from the program can also tell your friends and relatives that you were the victim of a crime. They can also contact your employer to minimize any loss of pay or benefits because of missed time related to the crime.

Some programs offer help with childcare, transportation, funeral arrangements and will notify people you owe money to that you will need more time to pay.

Do I have to pay for services at the victim service programs?

No. All services are free.

What other options do I have?

Every county has a Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Program.

These programs provide emergency and long-term support to victims and their families, like:

Emergency safe homes or shelters.

24-hour crisis telephone line.

Follow-up crisis and long-term counseling.

Someone to support you during medical exams, court hearings and when you deal with other agencies.
