Network for Victim Recovery (NVRDC)

  • Any victim of sexual assault who seeks a SANE exam is met at the hospital by a trained professional advocate who is employed by NVRDC. The advocate provides support through the initial crisis phase and the recovery process, including assistance with crime victims’ compensation, housing, entry into counseling, follow-up medical care, and legal services. NVRDC is proud to partner with MedStar Washington Hospital Center, DC’s Office of Victim Services, and the DC Forensic Nurse Examiner program who co-manage the DC SANE program. Ongoing case management is available in order to provide victims with a point of contact during their recovery process. The goal of the case management unit is to provide ongoing assessment of victim needs, stabilizing support and advocacy to victims, and to ensure that victim’s needs are being addressed and met either through NVRDC’s services or those of a trusted referral partner. Services provided may include, but are not limited to:

    • Safety Planning
    • Victim Notification
    • Crime Victims Compensation assistance
    • Criminal justice support and court accompaniment
    • Interpretation services
    • Civil legal services
    • Victim's rights representation
