BENEFITING: WINGED HOPE FAMILY ADVOCACY FOUNDATION INC
Winged Hope helps to support the start up and sustainability of Family Advocacy Centers. Family Advocacy Centers reduce trauma to victims of crime by empowering them by utilizing the multi-disciplinary method of investigation. They do this through the collaboration of Law Enforcement, CPS, Prosecution, Mental Health Services, Medical Professionals and Victim Advocacy Services, in an effort to streamline the process. This team effort makes it easier on the victim and the victim’s family, while at the same time leading to successful prosecution of the accused.
Currently the cities of Chandler, Gilbert, and Tempe Arizona do not have a dedicated Family Advocacy Center. Winged Hope's goal is to establish a center to serve the victims in those cities.
