Victim Services Toronto provides short-term crisis response, intervention and prevention services which are responsive to the needs of individuals, families and communities in the immediate aftermath of crime and sudden tragedy (typically within 72 hours).
Our vision is to help victims of crime and sudden tragedies restore and enhance their quality of life while working to prevent victimization in the diverse communities we serve
We believe that people receiving services from VST (clients) are the experts in their own lives. Clients will receive non-judgmental support from VST and will be encouraged to make their own decisions.
