Victim Services and Resources

Established in 1984 with the enactment of the Commonwealth's first Victim Bill of Rights, MOVA strives to ensure access to equitable services across the Commonwealth.

MOVA provides assistance to crime victims and connects them with local providers available to assist them. Further, MOVA puts on training opportunities for victim service providers, criminal justice professionals, survivors, and community-based organizations to ensure those who work with victims and survivors are compassionate, informed, and are able to collaborate with one another in order to meet victim and survivor needs.

If you are looking for local victim services, please visit our AskMOVA page at You can find services by crime type and/or location on AskMOVA.
