AdHoc Group Against Crime

Program Summary:
The purpose of AdHoc’s comprehensive COMBAT-funded Caring for Crime Survivors program is to reduce the impact of violent crime in Jackson County neighborhoods and the potential for further violence. These services correspond to the COMBAT Violence Prevention focus area. AdHoc seeks to reduce the impact of violence and reduce the potential for retaliation or further harm by focusing on psycho-social healing using two main, existing prevention services: Crisis Case Management and Counseling with licensed therapists.

Most Crisis Case Management support is initiated through self-referral calls to AdHoc's 24/7 community and youth Help Lines, through walk-ins to the AdHoc office, and through referrals from community agencies. AdHoc averages 160 calls a month from people requesting some kind of assistance. In addition, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office and Aim4Peace make referrals for victims and witnesses.
