Safe Horizon Criminal Court Programs

We have reception centers in all five boroughs to provide a safe and supportive space while visiting Criminal Court.

Resources at our reception centers:

  • Provide a safe, emotionally supportive space for you to wait for any court hearings, which means avoiding offenders until cases are called
  • Case managers provide crisis intervention counseling and an explanation of the arrest process and your role
  • Provide advocacy for Orders of Protection
  • Offer practical help when appropriate, such as, emergency housing transfers, food coupons, transportation, emergency clothing and food, referrals and lock changes
  • Explain the court process for each part including plea-bargaining and sentencing, court dates, court appearances, bail, arraignment and other issues
  • Safety planning for future incidents and emotional support
  • Explain your possible eligibility for Crime Victim Board compensation and help you with the application process
