Moose Jaw & District Victim Services
You are not alone.
Moose Jaw & District Victim Services is a team consisting of a Coordinator, Admin. Assistant and volunteers providing ongoing support, information, and referral services to victims of crime and traumatic events.
We work along side the Moose Jaw Police Service as well as the Moose Jaw Royal Canadian Mounted Police to support individuals in our community. We strive to have meaningful partnerships in Moose Jaw and area to refer individuals to appropriate resources, agencies and organizations that one will benefit from.
Since 1994, we have been providing ongoing support to individuals. With strong communication, acceptance and patience, in June 2021, Terri Roney, took over the Moose Jaw & District Victim Services Program as the new Coordinator. Her passion and empathy for individuals in the community will continue to excel the program forward to ensure the best trauma informed practices take place.
Following a traumatic experience, you may often feel overwhelmed confused and distrust of others. The trauma one feels after being victimized, can never fully be anticipated. No matter what type of crime has been committed against you or your family, you face the real possibility of suffering emotional trauma. Trauma is not a sign of weakness and knows no gender or boundaries.
