Crisis Intervention.

NVRDC manages the advocacy portion of the District’s Sexual Assault Crisis Response Project (SACRP). Through SACRP, any person who has experienced sexual assault and would like to receive a forensic (“SANE”) exam can receive assistance with free transportation to MedStar Washington Hospital Center where they will be met 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.

Any person who would like to reach an advocate regarding questions or to receive a forensic medical exam for a sexual assault, you can call 800-641-4028.

Currently, NVRDC co-facilitates support groups for victims of crime with the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing. These groups provide a place for people to express the many emotions associated with having been the victim of a crime in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment.
