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


NCVAN is committed to preserving the privacy and security of all victims & survivors. Therefore, for online meetings, we use the most secure and private, HIPAA-Compliant version of Zoom. This means that we use Zoom's version with the safeguards and privacy protections required by 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. Check back here for updates.
