Angel House advocates for victims’ rights and services for victims of violent crime, providing direct services to victims and their families, and providing public education and awareness.
Our staff members are available to assist the family and loved ones of a homicide victim. Advocates assist survivors in communicating with Police, Attorney's General office, and Governor's Office and provide emotional and physical support throughout the course of your case. Advocates work closely with the staff in all phases of the Criminal Justice System. There are nearly 45,000 homicides annually in the United States. This effects between 150,000 and 200,000 relatives and other survivors. The trauma and grief experienced by survivors cause emotional scars that last a lifetime.
We assist with Death Notification, Media Coverage, Funeral Arrangements, Victim's Compensation, Trial Attendance, Insurance Claims, Crime Scene Clean-up.

Wiregrass Angel House has started purchasing our memory pavers. These pavers will be placed under a newly constructed arbor. Each paver will be in memory or in honor of a loved one. This is not a fundraiser; we are only charging the price of the paver - $30. If you are interested in having a paver in memory of your loved one, please contact the Wiregrass Angel House office.

August 4th was National Night Out in Dothan for all the Wiregrass area to enjoy. There were many booths and give always, as well, as S.W.A.T. and K-9 demonstrations. There was something for everyone to see and participate in. The afternoon shower cooled things off to make it a more enjoyable event as participants ventured outside to see the fire trucks and such. Captain Jay, once again, did an outstanding job bringing it all together.
