Services Provided: The National Center for Victims of Crime is the nation's leading resource and advocacy organization for crime victims. Since 1985, we have worked with more than 10,000 grassroots organizations and criminal justice agencies serving millions of crime victims.

The mission of the National Center for Victims of Crime is to forge a national commitment to help victims of crime rebuild their lives. We are dedicated to serving individuals, families, and communities harmed by crime.

Victim Services
While every crime experience is unique, it is important that crime victims know they are not alone. Every month, tens of thousands of people call our toll-free helpline, visit this website, or email us looking for resources that can help them. The National Center maintains a comprehensive collection of on-line resources in addition to our extensive database of service providers for referrals.

How We Help Victims of Crime:
Through collaboration with local, state, and federal partners, we:
Provide direct services and resources;
Advocate for passage of laws and public policies that create resources and secure rights and protections for crime victims;
Deliver training and technical assistance to victim service organizations, counselors, attorneys, criminal justice agencies, and allied professionals; and
Foster cutting edge thinking about the impact of crime and the ways in which each of us can help victims regain control of their lives.
