This is a program that not many people know about. And while it is not directly related to insurance or personal injury, I have referred potential clients there when their case involves a violent crime.
Basically, the program is designed to help victims and witnesses participate in the system. The program provides crisis intervention, emergency services including food, clothing and lodging, referrals to community resources and compensation of out of pocket expenses for victims of crime.
The program can be reached through the McGeorge School of Law at 1 800 VICTIMS.
