The goal is to facilitate healing and empowerment for those who have experienced sexual trauma. The Counseling Center utilizes special programs designed for children, adolescents, and adults to meet their diverse needs. The Counseling Center is thankful to have a mobile counselor who is able to serve clients in school settings across Lancaster County. Our mobile counselor works with schools to establish a confidential place within each school where our specialized counseling can occur, where we can ensure that necessary releases and permission by a guardian s are obtained, and where the child can be served in a comfortable and safe setting.
Victim Services is a unit of the Waco Police Department. The unit provides on-scene crisis intervention, death notifications, victim education, emotional support, follow-up contact, assistance with Crime Victims Compensation, referral services and other pertinent victim needs. In order to meet the extensive needs of our growing community and to provide a service to crime victims, the unit relies heavily on volunteers that consist of community members wanting to actively make a difference in Victims lives. These are exceptional individuals who are not only interested in their own personal growth through both formal and experiential learning, but they are also willing to share their time, talents and insights in order to assist others. Our volunteers attend a Victim Services academy that is held times annually at the police department, lasts 4 weeks and is approximately 35 hours of in-class training. During the training they are trained by several units within the police department to include topics on death notifications, homicide, suicide, sexual assault, family violence, crime scene, and crisis intervention. Classroom instruction prepares those that wish to volunteer with the basic knowledge to guide victims through the beginning stages of the Criminal Justice process.
