No one wants to become the victim of a crime, but it can happen to any of us when we least expect it. Dealing with the criminal justice system can be challenging enough, but the crime itself can leave a lasting impact--physically, emotionally, psychologically, and even financially. The effects of a crime can disrupt your life and impact your relationships with family and friends, interfere with your ability to work and live, and set you back on your path toward rebuilding your life.
You're not alone.
Having a support system is vital. Sometimes, having family and friends to turn to is enough. Sometimes, it takes a village--a group of individuals who have been through the same struggles--to help you learn to stand on your own again.
Where and When?
Our support group meets with licensed counselors at Mazzitti & Sullivan every week. Whether you feel like sharing your story and your struggles, or whether you are simply there to know you're not alone in your challenges, we welcome you to our support group, no matter what type of crime has affected you.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"I’m thankful that you guys do this. Sometimes we do need that person to talk to… I didn’t have that outlet, and if you guys give people that outlet and someone to talk to, it just makes a difference. I appreciate everything you’ve done. I’m grateful and I’m thankful. You guys do an awesome job. Keep doing what you’re doing, because we families need this, we really do."
