Phoenix Family ​Advocacy Center​

Our Mission​

To provide comprehensive services to victims of domestic and sexual violence, homicide, and other violent crimes; and to take a leadership role in educating the community about the impact of violence.

If you have been a victim of a crime, we are here to help.

Crime victims of all types may experience trauma, which can be displayed in many ways.

Physical:  Someone who has experienced physical trauma may have serious injury or shock to the body, as from a major accident.  Intense stress reactions may also occur: Increase of breathing, blood pressure, and heart rate and muscles may tighten.  Exhaustion, inability to sleep, headaches, increased or decreased appetites, or digestive problems may be a symptom of trauma.

Emotional:  A crime victim may experience emotional trauma that may have long-lasting effects.  Emotional trauma may take many different forms:  Shock or numbness, denial, disbelief, and anger.​
