In addition to the community-based nonprofit advocacy programs and shelters listed above, most prosecutors offices, some police/sheriff departments, and a few parole/probation offices operate victim assistance programs (VAPs).

Victim assistance programs offer:

  • support to victims of crime with navigating the criminal justice system;
  • assistance with applying for state crime victims compensation; and
  • referrals to other service providers in the community.

VAPs generally provide services to victims of crime in relation to criminal cases that are being prosecuted by the state. They do not generally provide support in relation to civil legal proceedings (e.g. divorce, protective orders petitions, civil lawsuits).

Victim assistance programs ≠ Community-based advocates

Victim assistance programs (VAPs) operate within a prosecutor's office or law enforcement agency. As such, communication between survivors and VAPs is not protected by legal privilege and may not necessarily be confidential. Information may be shared between VAPs and prosecutors/law enforcement.
