The Fox Cities Victim Crisis Response Team provides a number of important services to the Fox Cities community. These include on-scene crisis response services, follow-up victim services, and some additional services.
Crisis Intervention Services
We work with 14 local police departments in and around the Fox Valley to provide on-scene victim support services. Our team of dedicated, well trained volunteers is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to respond to crimes and other traumatic events as needed.
Our volunteers operate in teams of two. When responding to a call, our goal is to help victims/survivors feel safe, allow them to express their emotions, and help them understand what comes next. We also provide informational packets that include resources to help them with specific needs. The packets may include information such as victim/survivor rights, legal resources and options, grief support materials, caregiver info, and more.

Burglary / Robbery
Follow-Up Victim Services
Trauma doesn’t end at the scene of the crisis. The traumatic event is often just the beginning of a long healing journey. In order to ensure victims are getting the help they need to move forward, we follow up with them to provide additional support materials as needed, recommend community organizations they can work with, and help them apply for Wisconsin’s Crime Victim Compensation Program.
In addition to providing on-scene and follow-up support services for victims of crime and other traumatic events, we also provide a number of supplementary services to the community. We assist law enforcement with drug sorts, active shooter scenarios, role playing, and other related tasks. We also collaborate with law enforcement and other community organizations to respond to emergencies such as large-scale traumatic events, natural disasters, active shooters, and missing and endangered people.
