Who We Are

Who We Are.

NVRDC is a holistic victim services organization empowering crime victims in the nation’s capital. NVRDC provides free and comprehensive case management and legal services to victims of all types of crime regardless of income.

Legal Services.

NVRDC offers advice and representation for victims of crime regarding criminal matters against the person(s) who committed the crime against them.  This includes assisting survivors of sexual assault with reporting to police, accompanying crime victims to grand jury proceedings, and direct representation of the crime victim in a criminal prosecution against the person(s) charged with commission of the crime.

In Civil Protection Order (CPO) cases, we advise and represent survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner/domestic/dating violence, or stalking in DC Superior Court.

For college and university student survivors of sexual assault, domestic/intimate partner/dating violence, and stalking, NVRDC offers advice and representation regarding accommodations and on-campus student misconduct procedures under laws such as Title IX and the Clery Act.

Legal Clinics.

NVRDC also offers legal advice and referral clinics twice a month for victims of all crime types who can obtain advice and information regarding their legal issues.

NVRDC conducts monthly Know Your Rights presentations and clinics at local universities where volunteers help present to students about their rights in the criminal and civil judicial systems in DC, as well as their rights in university-based processes.

Case Management.

Ongoing case management will be provided in order to provide victims with a point of contact during their recovery process. Services they provide may include, but are not limited to:

  • Safety planning
  • Crime Victims Compensation application assistance
  • Criminal justice support and court accompaniment
  • Interpretation services
  • Resource information and referrals

Crisis Intervention.

NVRDC manages the advocacy portion of the District’s Sexual Assault Crisis Response Project (SACRP).  Through SACRP, any person who has experienced sexual assault and would like to receive a forensic (“SANE”) exam can receive assistance with free transportation to MedStar Washington Hospital Center where they will be met by a trained professional advocate who is employed by NVRDC. The advocate provides support through the initial crisis phase and the recovery process, including assistance with crime victims’ compensation, housing, entry into counseling, follow-up medical care, and legal services.

Any person who would like to reach an advocate regarding questions or to receive a forensic medical exam for a sexual assault, you can call 800-641-4028.

Therapeutic Services.

Currently, NVRDC co-facilitates support groups for victims of crime with the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing. These groups provide a place for people to express the many emotions associated with having been the victim of a crime in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment.

How to get help.

If you are seeking legal or case management services, call our office at 202-742-1727 between 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday in order to do an intake interview with a member of our staff. You can also email in order to ask someone to call you directly.

If you want legal advice or information about how to report a crime and the possible consequences of reporting, Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC) criminal victims’ rights attorneys can help you through the process. NVRDC offers two monthly Call-in Clinics on the second Monday from 6 to8 pm and the fourth Wednesday from 11 am to 1 pm every month at 202-742-1727. At the clinic, you may receive brief advice about your rights, the criminal judicial process, or begin the process of attaining legal representation
