In 1982 the state of Colorado enacted the Crime Victim Compensation Act. Funds for this program come from fines collected from adults and juveniles who are convicted of crimes. Awards to victims are made by the Crime Victim Compensation Board whose members are volunteer citizens appointed by the District Attorney in each judicial district.
Who is Eligible?
Small Steps Healing Center provides trauma therapy for these victims. SSHC is currently approved to provide counseling sessions to these victims in Mesa County and Garfield County.
Crime victims are often left alone to deal with what has happened to them. Often these victims are children.
The Colorado Crime Victims Compensation Program may provide free therapy sessions for these victims. Rachele Marlette at Small Steps Healing Center specializes in helping children who have experienced these traumas and has worked with some of the most high profile trauma cases in Western Colorado.
That is a decision between your family and the District Attorney. However, through the clinical therapeutic technique of Prolonged Exposure & Desensitization, Rachele can help your child to overcome the emotional guilt and shame of the traumatic experience, and to be ready to confidently share their trauma in the courtroom.
