The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre has developed a new program that provides street level access to victims of crime. This program offers a safe getaway for marginalized people to acquire information and receive support to ultimately access and successfully navigate the criminal justice system. Other services include identifying participants who are eligible to access financial benefits, court support and crisis intervention. Services offered include: court preparation assistance and accompaniment for victims of crime; help with victim impact statements, as well as requests for restitution or financial compensation; assistance with pursuing benefits in cases of severe injury, such as quadraplegia or brain injury; education for the homeless servicing agencies on services available to victims of crime.
