Mission

According to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the District of Columbia suffers the highest combined per-capita rate of traumatic deaths (homicides, suicides and accidents) of any major city in the U.S. At the beginning of its 2004 annual report entitled "Moving Forward in Victim Services,"the DC Department of Justice Grants Admini-stration summarized the District's historical and on-going struggles to adequately serve survivors after these tragedies: "Too often, they have been left to face the devastation . . . without adequate assistance. There has long been . . . a lack of a comprehensive, coordinated response to victims." As stated in a recent DOJ publication, "The way people cope as victims . . . depends largely on their experiences immediately following the (incident)." Those receiving immediate support and referral are more likely to eventually rebuild healthy, joyful, productive lives, while those who do not are at higher risk of beginning a downward spiral into despair, substance abuse, school failure, family breakup, unemploy-ment, and even suicide. In recognition of this, the DOJ, the International Association of Chiefs of Police ("IACP") and the National Organi-zation for Victim Assistance ('NOVA"), which jointly publish the national standard of care for victim services in community policing, recom-mend that every community offer on-scene crisis care to traumatized citizens. The DC Office for Victim Services has stated the need for such a program quite succinctly: "Providing victims with the knowledge that they are not alone and that help is available can literally mean the difference between life and death."

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

CCC is developing a nonsectarian District-wide volunteer crisis care program based on a model that has operated with great success for many years in a number of other major U.S. cities, including Los Angeles, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Portland, Seattle, Dallas and elsewhere. Thoroughly-screened, well-trained lay volunteers from all walks of life respond immediately to requests from law enforcement to provide on-scene support to traumatized citizens 24 hours a day. Volunteers provide a caring presence during the worst times of peoples' lives by:
 Creating a safe and compassionate environment for survivors to express their reactions,
 helping survivors understand what is happening and what to expect,
 serving as compassionate liaisons between survivors and officers,
 helping convene survivors? family, friends and clergy,
 giving survivors basic information on how to care for themselves and one another,
 referring survivors to agencies that can offer long-term support,
 providing other practical assistance as appropriate.
