The OVC HELP for Victim Service Providers Web Forum was a place where victim service providers and allied professionals can connect to peers, share ideas about best practices, and help change lives from 2004-2016.

Special Notice: As of January 2017 OVC is no longer hosting Guest Host sessions on this platform. We encourage you to visit the OVC Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) website to learn about Expert Q&A online discussions. Expert Q&A is a national forum designed to help victim service providers communicate with national experts and colleagues about best practices for assisting victims of crime.

You may still also access transcripts from past sessions from past Web Forum Guest Host Sessions to learn about best practices and standards for serving victims of crime.

If you are a victim of crime in need of assistance, please AskOVC.
