Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Hampton Victim-Witness Assistance Program is designed to assist victims and witnesses with their involvement through the Criminal Justice System.
It is the goal of the Hampton Victim-Witness Assistance Program to ensure that the rights of victims and witnesses are not overlooked.
The Hampton Victim-Witness Program has been in existence since 1984 and strives to provide victims and witnesses of Hampton with quality service.
Understanding the Criminal Justice process can often be intimidating and confusing to witnesses who have to appear in court. We want to help minimize the many frustrations that are associated with coming to court by providing indvidiuals with as much information as possible.

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.
