Serving victims – This is the foundation of victim advocacy. Advocates serve victims on a daily basis in a variety of ways: advising victims of their rights, providing necessary referrals, helping victims prepare victim impact statements and request restitution, and generally assisting victims in their recovery from the crime. No one expects to become a victim, but advocates and prosecutors work diligently to ensure that victims are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
