About the Forum
The HELP for Victim Service Providers message board is hosted by
the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), which provides leadership
and funding on behalf of crime victims. OVC developed this resource
as a tool for victim service providers and allied professionals to
share ideas, suggestions, and recommendations concerning promising
practices, best practices, and victim issues.
OVC's mission is to enhance the nation's capacity to assist crime
victims and to provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies,
and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims.
OVC provides federal funds to support crime victim compensation
and assistance programs across the nation. OVC also provides training
for diverse professionals who work with victims, develops and disseminates
publications, supports projects to enhance victims' rights and services,
and educates the public about victim issues.
Take advantage of the many products and services OVC has to offer, from publications and videos to skill-building training sessions and comprehensive service and event databases. To learn more about OVC's valuable resources, see:
