As the national leader in crime victim advocacy, NOVA is building a new future for victims and survivors of crime. Our vision starts with the fundamental question: How can we best support and empower victims, survivors, and communities in the aftermath of a crime or traumatic event? Our answer drives NOVA’s goals:
- Ensure every victim and survivor has the right to receive professional victim advocacy services, including nonjudgmental support, information, and resources.
- Advocate for victims’ rights to be universally recognized and enforced across our country
- Support communities by training crisis response teams (CRTs) to deploy and support victims and survivors following mass casualties and natural disasters
- Build a national—and international movement—of professionally trained and credentialed victim advocates and crisis responders
Last year, NOVA’s unwavering commitment to crime victim advocacy had a profound impact—training over 6,000 crime victim advocates; offering critical information to over 10,000 victims and survivors of crime on our helpline; deploying crisis response teams to victims and survivors in the aftermath of mass casualties. Next year, we will touch more lives with your support!
