Victims of Crime Act- Advocacy for Crime Victims
The Victims of Crime Act Program (VOCA) provides advocacy and support services to all identifying as past or current, reported or unreported, victims of crime. VOCA assesses victims’ situations and helps identify next steps.

VOCA can help access the criminal justice system if appropriate and victims’ compensation fund if eligible.
