Neighborhood crime hurts all of us. Victims of crime often feel discouraged, fearful, and isolated. Reassuring support often helps people to recover more quickly from the trauma of a robbery, assault, burglary, or other crime.
Our Mission: to provide support and assistance in and outside of the court room to victims of violent crime primarily in Center City Philadelphia.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting victims of violent crime in the 6th and 9th districts of Philadelphia. Our services are completely free of charge and every communication between victims and the Victim Advocates are subject to our confidentiality policy. Our services cover our “neighborhood," which is between Poplar and South streets, and from the Schuylkill River east to the Delaware River.
Victims and witnesses who live in or were victimized in this area, or who find our location to be most convenient to them are all able to solicit our services. CCCVS works to reach all members of the community, regardless of race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and/or gender identity.
