During The National Day of Remembrance for Homicide Victims, advocates and community members pay tribute to and honor murder victims and surviving family members. The day also honors the work of organizations that provide services such as support, advocacy, and counselling for families, individuals and communities coping with homicide-related deaths.
The Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants provides funding to community-based organizations that provide crisis response, emotional support, advocacy, and counseling for families, individuals, and communities coping with homicide-related deaths.
If you, or someone you know, has been affected by homicide, the DC Victim Hotline can provide information, resources, and referrals to services. To contact the Hotline, dial or text 1-844-4HELPDC (1-844-443-5732) or access the online chat at www.DCvictim.org/chat.
