Bilingual Victim Advocate

A Resource to Local Services


The advocate who works with this program is a Spanish / English bilingual counselor who assists Spanish-speaking crime victims in locating the assistance they need. She helps victims to understand the structure and limitations of the justice system by providing court support and accompaniment.

The advocate also helps victims file for Orders of Protection, and for victim compensation from the Tennessee Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund, if they are eligible, and assists them in obtaining concrete social services.
