Organization Description
Network for Victim Recovery of DC empowers victims of all crimes to achieve survivor defined justice through a collaborative continuum of advocacy, case management and legal services. Created in 2012, the founders of NVRDC were motivated by three deep beliefs: 1. The belief that survivors of crime must have a welcoming place to go in order to learn of their rights and enjoy a supportive and empowering environment as they process their experiences and determine how to respond to the crime;2. The commitment to a holistic model of victim services to assist victims of all types of crime; and 3. The understanding that research has affirmatively shown that legal services provided with supportive counseling and case management services provide a greater benefit to survivors who are participating in the civil or criminal justice process.
