At Night Owl Reconnaissance, we understand that the process of finding a missing person is only the first step in a long and challenging journey. Survivors of missing person cases often face physical, emotional, and psychological hurdles in the aftermath of their experiences. That’s why our organization is committed to providing a range of survivor services to help individuals who have been recovered get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.
Our Survivor Services teams provide guidance on how to reintegrate after having gone missing, and help provide access to additional support and resources through public assistance programs and other charitable organizations.
- Counseling and Therapy: Recovering from a traumatic experience can be overwhelming and isolating. That’s why we help the survivor/family/caregiver find counseling and therapy services that work best for them and their situation. We work to provide information on organizations and businesses that are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive space where individuals can process their experiences and work towards healing.
- Financial Assistance: Many survivors of missing person cases face financial challenges as they navigate the aftermath of their experiences.We provide guidance and resources for survivors to access additional financial support through public assistance programs and other charitable organizations.
- Legal Support: There can be many legal challenges that arise after being recovered from a dangerous situation. We aim to work with organizations that provide legal support to survivors of missing person cases and collaborate with any potential victim advocates appointed through the court process. We want survivors to understand their legal rights and options and have guidance on how to navigate legal proceedings related to their recovery.
- Support Groups: Our survivor support groups offer a safe and supportive space where individuals can connect with others who have gone through similar experiences. We offer both in-person and virtual support groups, led by experienced facilitators.
- Victim Advocacy: Possible advocacy on behalf of the missing persons or family if permitted given local/geo practices.
Outside of collaborating with partner organizations, we are developing a variety of educational resources and tools to help survivors navigate the recovery process. These resources cover topics such as mental health, financial management, and legal rights.
