Victim’s Assistance Resources
The NC Victim Assistance Network (NCVAN) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that advocates for victims of violent crime, especially surviving family members of homicide victims.
The Crime Victims Fund (the Fund), established by the 1984 Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), supports programs that significantly impact the lives of more than 4.2 million crime victims each year. OVC distributes money deposited into the Fund directly to states to support state compensation and assistance services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, drunk driving, homicide, and other crimes. ~The Office for Victims of Crime
Crime victim compensation is a government program to reimburse victims of violent crimes- such as assault, homicide, rape, and, in some states, burglary – as well as their families for many of their out-of-pocket expenses. Every state has a crime victim compensation program.
