- Crime Victims Advocacy Council (CVAC) was organized in July 1989, under the guidance of Urban Action, Inc., the urban ministry program of the United Methodist Church in North Georgia. Urban Action, through participation in various types of assistance programs, became aware of unmet needs of the many crime victims of our society. CVAC was developed specifically to respond to these needs, Subsequently; CVAC incorporated as an independent, nonprofit organization.
