Victim Resource Program

The mission of the Yakama Nation Victim Resource Program is to support and identify the needs of victims of crime and the Yakama Nation community, through a comprehensive approach that integrates mental health to address historical and interpersonal trauma. The Victim Resource Program will help all victims of crime, focusing on domestic violence, sexual assault/abuse, stalking, dating violence, and human trafficking. Victim-centered activities will entail wellness, job training, financial empowerment, crisis management, emergency victim services, and youth engagement.
