Homicide Support Groups

NCVAN is currently offering support groups for loved ones of homicide victims only online due to the COVID-19 crisis. We believe doing so is the best way to continue to offer support while safeguarding the health and well-being of our staff and the victim/survivors we serve.


NCVAN is committed to preserving the privacy and security of all victim/survivors. Therefore, for online meetings, we use the most secure and private, HIPAA-Compliant version of Zoom. This means that we use the version of Zoom that has the safeguards and privacy protections that are required even of medical professionals. That’s how important it is to us to protect the privacy and security of us all.


We certainly hope that it will be safe to resume in-person support group meetings and grief workshops very soon.
