About the Forum

The HELP for Victim Service Providers message board was hosted by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), which provides leadership and funding on behalf of crime victims.

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.
