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.
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:
