Statewide Victim Services
CDVSA sponsors 24 victim service programs. Most victim service programs provide emergency shelter. Programs also provide safety planning and community-based advocacy to both victims of domestic violence and victims of sexual assault. A person does not need to be a shelter resident in order to receive services. Even though most programs are located in hub communities, all provide services to rural areas.

If you are in need of immediate help or assistance please call 911.
The Council also supports civil legal advocacy services and programs that provide training. The Council supports the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in providing legal advocacy through the Legal Advocacy Project (LAP) to help increase the ability of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault to effectively access and participate in the civil and criminal justice system by providing legal advocacy training and support for advocates. The LAP acts as a resource for advocates at victim services programs throughout Alaska. The Network also provides Pro Bono Legal Services to women in need of civil legal services. Find out more.
