ND Victim Assistance Association has grown to become an integral part of the judicial system. Essentially, we are a mix of victim service providers that work together, helping victims of all types of crimes by meeting their basic rights.

Who We Are

The plight of crime victims and witnesses to crime in North Dakota has improved with the development of victims and witness assistance programs and the passage of the Fair Treatment Standards for Victims and Witnesses of Crime; North Dakota Century Code 12.1-34 & 12.1-35. In response to the needs and rights of victims of crime, the Victim Assistance programs across the state formed the North Dakota Victim Assistance Association (NDVAA). The NDVAA is made up of local, state and federal victim assistance programs throughout the state of North Dakota. The programs are located in law enforcement agencies, state and federal prosecutor's offices, domestic violence crisis centers and corrections offices, providing services to victims at every level of the criminal justice system.
