Victim Services Durham Region (VSDR)

Is a team of crisis intervention counsellors, prevention facilitators, advocates, students, and trained volunteers who support community members in dealing with the reality of unexpected tragedy. While we have done so much to support our community, the reality is that as we come out of the pandemic the demands on our services continue to grow.

We collaborate with community agencies to provide rapid, trauma-informed support and advocacy for every person in Durham who has experienced crime or sudden tragedy.

We’re recruiting 100 Community First Responders to help us mobilize efforts to support Durham residents.

In the minutes, hours and days following a tragedy, we’re there. We help those who have lost a loved one, been a victim of a crime or trafficking, experienced online exploitation or are leaving an abusive relationship.

By joining our campaign, you are helping us to provide:

  • Immediate stability and safety for victims through our Crises Response program.
  • Immediate support in the aftermath of an incident or tragedy to navigate the system and connect individuals to social services, subsidized housing, financial assistance, referrals, resources, emotional support and more.
  • Immediate support for victims to apply for funding for basic needs through the Victim Quick Response Program+. Basic needs include items like food, medication and even funeral services for homicide victims and more.
  • Human trafficking education, training, and intervention, an issue that continues to grow at an unprecedented rate in the Durham region.
