We offer holistic case management to support the safety, stability and healing of victims of crime and their families.
VOCA stands for the Victims of Crime Act, federal legislation that provides money to the states for victim advocacy and assistance. In CT the program is funded by the State of Ct Judicial Branch Office of Victim Services.
The program is FREE and is open to people of any income level. Recent victims of any crime are welcome, but even when a crime occurred years earlier, victims are welcome to request services. The crime does not have to have been reported to law enforcement.
