How We Help

WE STAND with victims to make sure that they will
recover after violent crime invades their lives.

Sometimes, the problems created by crime are larger than you can solve on your own. Atlanta Victim Assistance Advocates give victims access to criminal justice advocacy or emotional support that eases their transition to recovery.
