Some victims want the ability to connect with other victims in a group setting; however, prefer the privacy of their own home. For this purpose, an on-line support group is held so members can receive support from others and guidance from a trained victim’s advocate. Members will connect from their home computer using a Yahoo messenger ID provided by a REAL Crisis Victim Advocate.
