Whether you are a victim, a survivor, or want to help someone in your life that has been affected, we have designated victim advocates that are available to provide the compassionate care and support that you need and deserve during this difficult time. Our services are available at no cost to victims and survivors, and are designed to help you find local resources, as well as connect and find support with others that have also been affected by drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. Most importantly, we are here to let you know that no matter what, you are not alone.
Currently our advocates are able to assist victims, survivors, and their families that live in Central Florida.
We are here to support you in whatever way best fits your needs. We're going to listen when you're ready to talk, and support you when you need someone to lean on.

As a family that has lost a loved one, we want to be able to provide help, support, and compassion to those that are experiencing similar pain. While no two people and no two tragedies are the same, our experiences over the last several years have shown us that advocacy is a necessary component of the recovery process for any type of victimization. There are so many victims and survivors that aren't aware of their rights, and don't realize that victim services are available in their local area. We hope that by offering resources and support to those that have been affected, we can reach more people and show them that they are not alone.
We understand that what you are going through is difficult. No matter what you are experiencing, we want to know that you are not alone and that there are resources available to assist you every step of the way. Reach out to your local community leaders, religious leaders, or a trusted friend or family member to help you find the support you need. You can also talk to one of our victim advocates by calling our office at 407-776-4694 or submitting your information here. We have also included some helpful information that you can download below.
