The goal of Silicon Valley FACES’ Victim Witness Assistance Program is to provide needed services for victims and witnesses of violent crime and to encourage their cooperation in the investigation of the case and prosecution of the offender. Our staff and trained volunteers provide direct assistance, peer counseling, information and referral services to over 8,000 victims and witnesses each year. Translation services for non-English speaking clients are available in multiple languages.
The Victim Witness Assistance Program was established in 1975 and is funded by the State of California from penalty assessments collected from convicted offenders.
