NVRDC welcomes all survivors of crime,
regardless of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, income status, race, ethnicity, religion, immigrant status, or ability.
The Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC) provides free, holistic, and comprehensive case management and legal services to victims of all types of crime regardless of income. We believe that victims deserve respect for their dignity in the aftermath of a crime. NVRDC seeks to empower crime victims in our nation’s capital by meeting them where they are and, in doing so, provide vital services in order to achieve justice and encourage self-determination.
If you want a sexual assault forensic exam (aka. “rape kit”), please call the DC Victim Hotline to connect with one of our advocates:
