Would you recommend Hampton Victim-Witness Assistance Program?

by Mable F. from HAMPTON, VA (September 8, 2016)
I have read many good things about the program and know that this program is design to work mainly for those coming out of the Criminal Justice System or working on their degree in that field, to help them to understand the system and also it is design and build to work. However going to court may be one of the most frustrating thing that one can go through in any case this program is design to make individuals such as myself and others understand the fundamental and aspect to help other to gather resources they need to understand the system and their rights as victims and as witnesses so that they may not get passed over or left behind in the criminal justice system. I would recommend this for another colleague because it allows you to contribute back to the community and show how much compassionate you do have doing it. To be able to work in a field like this you must have love and compassion for other and what you do on your job, the passion for other keeps you going each day.
