Victim of Crime Advocacy
Offering Assistance to Victims of Crime
The Tri-County Victim of Crime Advocacy Program, or VOCA, assists elders who have been the victim of a crime. Our caring, and helpful advocates work with you and your family to guide you through the legal process, and can help with emergency needs, and short term or long term access to other resources.
If you have been the victim of a crime, you are not alone. We are here to offer help, a listening ear, or to provide mentoring and education to ensure you are protected from any future victimization.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of a crime, contact the Tri-County VOCA program at 401-626-3447 for information and help.
