 OFFICE FOR VICTIMS OF CRIME (OVC) 
Online, digital voice service, text, or email-based hotlines are a crucial lifeline for victims. If you or someone you know has been a victim of crime, there are services available to help. Explore OVC’s Helplines page to find hotlines (both toll-free and online) that serve victims of a wide range of crimes, including human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault, homicide, financial crimes, and stalking.  Resources also include the recently launched Department of Justice’s National Elder Fraud Hotline, managed by OVC, that provides support to adults ages 60 and older who may be victims of financial fraud.
View these resources today to access direct services, information, and referrals.
