INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced Tuesday that Legacy House was named the 2016 Prosecutor’s Crime Fighter of the Year.
According to Curry, Legacy House was chosen in recognition of the critical support provided to victims of violence in Marion County. That support included crisis intervention, trauma counseling and advocacy services.
In a release, the prosecutor’s office noted that Legacy House counselors provided nearly 7,300 contacts and services to over 1,000 clients in 2015.
“Legacy House has proved to be an invaluable resource and partner for public safety by helping victims become survivors,” Curry said. “Our mission to preserve the rights of victims and seek justice on their behalf can only be achieved with support from the community. Legacy House provides that critical support to victims and those affected by violent crime.”
In addition to providing counseling and advocacy services to men, women and children who are victims of trauma, Legacy House’s services also extend to family members of suicide and homicide victims.
Legacy House also offers counseling and therapy services to first responders who experience traumatic events in the line of duty.
