National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is Here
April 18–24, 2021 marks the 40th Anniversary of Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Aftermath Services is joining the Office of Victims Crimes (OVC) in its effort to inspire local communities and to raise awareness of victims’ rights by promoting this year’s NCVRW theme—Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.
Crime Victim Compensation & Resources
Crime victim compensation is a government program that provides financial assistance to victims of violent crimes and their families. Every state has a crime victim compensation program, though benefits, eligibility, and application vary by state. Below are resources that may be of assistance:
- U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC): provides an online directory of Victim Services throughout the country. The OVC also provides information about victim assistance and compensation programs available across the US.
- National Association of Crime Victim Compensation Boards: provides information on state-specific crime victim compensation programs.
- National Center for Victims of Crime: the nation’s leading resource and advocacy organization for crime victims and those who serve them.
- VictimConnect: a place for crime victims to learn about their rights and options confidentially and compassionately.
Join Aftermath Services in raising awareness of victims’ rights and services, highlighting programs, celebrating progress achieved, and honoring victims and the professionals who serve them.
