Find support if you experienced a crime

If you or someone you know survived a crime, find hotlines and services in your state where you can get counseling, seek shelter, and locate other types of support.

These resources from the Department of Justice (DOJ) offer crime victim and survivor support programs, including:

  • Toll-free and online hotlines
  • A directory of local and state programs specifically geared to the type of crime you have experienced
  • Help for older adults who have experienced fraud
  • Support after experiencing terrorism or mass violence
  • Aid for U.S. citizens experiencing crime abroad
