Who we are
Lacombe VSU is a non-profit organization of volunteers who help people through difficult times. Under the guidance and direction of the Lacombe Police Service, our board and the Alberta Solicitor General, we provide support, information and referral services to victims of crime and trauma and their families and friends.
Support Is Available Right Here...
Our services are available on a 24 hour basis, and are free and confidential.
What We Do
When people suffer a traumatic experience as a victim of crime or trauma, they are many times confused, overwhelmed, and distrustful of others. They may experience various physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive difficulties.
Our volunteers are first responders, available to provide support in the first few critical hours after an incident - particularly important for victims who do not have a support base of family or friends.
Lacombe Victim Services has one part time employee who assists victims and present information sessions. They are responsible for the administration of the unit and selection and supervision of the volunteers.
