“The NOVA Victim Assistance Academy was run with strength and integrity.  I have never learned so much in 40 hours.  How to approach a victim, how to give the victim their voice and as my native grandmother would say their power back.  And most of all, it will take time to understand all the ins and outs of victim advocacy.”

– Paul, Victim Advocate


“I learn something new on every occasion, becoming part of NOVA was one of the best things I could’ve done.”

– Darryl, Victim Advocate, Colorado


“Advocacy is a powerful equalizer for survivors of crime. NOVA provides the tools to help me be that supportive, equalizing force for others. The National Campus Advocacy Training gave me an amazing refresher and encouraged connections with other professionals. I am consistently empowered and supported by NOVA and their amazing team!”

– Joahn, Campus Advocate, South Carolina


“The trainings NOVA offers each month are so high quality.  I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to be able to learn from this group of outstanding professionals.  I am honored.  All of them make me better, and for that I am grateful.  This isn’t easy work.  It is wonderful work.”

– Marla, Protective Order Service Coordinator, Arizona
