Have you or someone you know been a victim of a crime?
Crime hurts – physically, financially and psychologically – for weeks, months and even years after the crime occurs. Personal injuries and financial burdens are often compounded by unexpected emotional turmoil affecting all aspects of a person's life.
Our mission is to empower individuals impacted by crime to move from crisis to resiliency. We provide resources, counseling, advocacy, and referrals for thousands of victims of crime and their families in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
The Crime Victim Center of St. Louis (CVC) was founded in 1972 as the first victim service agency in the nation. We offer a wide range of services for individuals, communities and other organizations and institutions seeking to improve their services to victims of crime.
We are here to give victims a voice.
