25 years of excellence

CVAC – Criminal Victims Advocacy Council – is dedicated to preventing crime and assisting crime victims and their families and communities in Georgia through quality education, advocacy, counseling, and legislative initiatives.

CRISIS INTERVENTION

We give assistance by phone and in person, in hospitals and in court rooms, wherever victims need our help.

SUPPORT GROUPS

CVAC provides a safe, supportive place where victims of any type of crime can find understanding and help.

ASSISTANCE IN FILING VICTIMS’ COMPENSATION

The Georgia Crime Victims Compensation Program reimburses victims for such things as hospital costs, funeral services and lost wages.

EDUCATION REGARDING THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM

We explain to victims how the court and prison systems work, in order to prevent the confusion and surprise which frustrates and re-victimizes victims.
