Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
Breakthrough ministries in Chicago ...
As violence heightens during the summer months in Chicago, Breakthrough’s Violence Prevention team is responding with an understanding of the burden traumatic events put on our neighbors and an effort to restore dignity and respect.
After incidents, Victim Advocates focus on providing emotional support and offering victim services. They provide home visits, transportation to medical appointments, mental health services, and other short and long-term support.
They are a response team, but it goes deeper than that, says Damien Morris, Senior Director of Violence Prevention. “They come from a stance of compassion,” he says. “They provide comfort, resources, and their listening ear.”
