Directory of Crime Victim Services

The Directory of Crime Victim Services is an online directory sponsored by OVC and administered by the OVC Resource Center. The directory is designed to help service providers and individuals locate services for victims of crime in the United States and other countries.

The directory is searchable by location, type of victimization, service needed, and agency type. The directory features services that offer to—

  • Provide victims of crime with a measure of safety and security.

  • Respond to the emotional and physical needs of crime victims.

  • Help primary and secondary victims of crime to stabilize their lives after victimization.

  • Help victims understand and participate in the criminal justice system.
