A voice for the voiceless... Zinn provides help to victims

LORI ZINN

Lori Zinn’s line of work involves much more than just sitting behind a desk inside the Lamb County & District Attorney’s Office.

Zinn, Lamb County’s Victim Assistance Coordinator, works with assault and domestic violence victims and in her words, “gives them a voice” and hope at the same time.

“My role is to work with anyone who has been injured in some way because of assault or domestic violence,” she said. “On occasion, I also work with people who might have been burglarized, but usually to collect full restitution on the victim’s behalf. But a majority of my time is spent working with assault victims.” She added, “Ultimately, I hope to give victims hope...I give them someone who says I believe in you. I also want them to know they can stop the cycle and abuse. They don’t deserve what they’ve been through or what’s been done to them.”

This is why Zinn feels it’s important for victims to know the type of assistance available to them if ever needed.
