When Kids are Victims of Crime

At Kids Matter we want to be your partner in helping your child recover after a crime. Whether the crime was against your child, the child witnessed a crime, or the child lost a loved one to crime there will be a recovery process. We are here to help.

You can use the information in the Child Abuse and Neglect, Violence in the Home, and Internet Violence pages to help you start to understand the crime and what you can do. Next you may want to try and determine whether your child shows signs of trauma and how you can help the child recover from trauma. We also have information about grief and healing.

Finally, take a look at our frequently asked questions, resources and stories pages for a better idea of how we can help you help your child heal.
