Victims of Crime Program

APU’s Community Counseling Center (CCC) began its Victims of Crime (VOC) Program in 2001, treating child and adult victims of reported and filed crimes. The individual and/or family is assisted with the initial State application, and a bilingual (English and Spanish) administrative team coordinates services with the client’s attorney. Local police departments, courts, school districts, and the VOC Program staff work together to help victims overcome trauma they have experienced.

Participants in the Victims of Crime Program are thoroughly screened to determine the impact of the trauma on their daily lives. Counseling is provided on an individual or group basis and is available in a variety of languages (English, Spanish, and other languages) to address emotional and psychological conditions such as grief, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

CCC staff members include clinical supervisors, and counselors in the VOC Program include trained marriage and family interns, and faculty from APU’s Department of Graduate Psychology.

The CCC is open Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. For further information, please call (626) 815-5421 or email ccc@apu.edu.
