As part of our mission, Victim Service Center (VSC) engages the community in strategies that promote the prevention and awareness of crime and sexual assault. VSC reaches out to citizens in our community through awareness and prevention presentations and/or tabling events monthly, reaching thousands of people annually. We work closely with law enforcement agencies, educational institutions, health providers, libraries, businesses, as we all governmental and non-profit organizations throughout Central Florida. Outreach staff collaborates with various law enforcement agencies to provide SAFE classes which aim to educate women by providing them with safety and empowerment techniques.
Outreach: Outreach activities are designed to provide information and to identify victims of crime and sexual violence. Outreach presentations are provided to schools, professionals, and various group and organizations. The VSC reaches out to our stakeholders through small group presentations, tabling events, our billboard campaign, a monthly newsletter, and collaboration with other community agencies. Below are examples of educational presentations.
- Sexual Assault
- How Men Can Prevent Sexual Violence (Sensitivity Training)

Prevention: The Victim Service Center’s prevention program reaches out to youth, teens, college students, educators, community providers, individuals, and communities at-large. The Victim Service Center prevention education program is designed to promote attitudes, behaviors, and social conditions that will reduce and eliminate factors that cause or contribute to violence and crime.
The Victim Service Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and age in the delivery of services.
