Community Crisis Response
August 1999 (format updated April 2002)


OVC is helping states and communities prepare community-based crisis response plans that include counseling and services for victims and surviving family members. Full Fact Sheet Arrow

OVC's Strategy
Many states have devised and implemented centralized crisis response plans, so OVC encourages communities in crisis to first contact their State VOCA administrator. OVC also plans to conduct a series of regional seminars and training courses so local crisis response teams learn how to respond to need in their communities.
