Strathcona County Victim Services provides immediate assistance, support and information to victims of crime and trauma.
You are not alone.
Victim Services is here to support you.
Strathcona County Victim Services marks 30 years of service in our community!
As part of National Volunteer Week, April 18 to 24, we shine a light on the contributions of the County’s Victim Services volunteers over the past three decades.
Special mention goes out to long-serving volunteer Bill Hunka (pictured above with RCMP Supt. Dave Kalist). Thanks for everything you do, Bill!
Growing up in a farming community, Bill saw how support from friends and neighbours made all the difference. The retired school principal says seeing firsthand the difference a victim advocate can make in someone’s life is what has kept him volunteering with Victim Services for over a decade now.
Being called to support someone who has suffered a traumatic event, such as the sudden death of a loved one or domestic violence incident, or even accompanying a witness through the court process—it’s all part of a victim advocate’s crisis response work, in partnership with the RCMP and Strathcona County Enforcement Services.
With gratitude, we recognize the service of our victim advocates. Thank you for your kindness, dedication and commitment to supporting people when they need it most. You make a difference in our community!
