Victims of Crime Act Program (VOCA)

The victims of violence often struggle with shame as well as a variety of different behavioral health issues such as depression and anxiety.

Team members from the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Program offer support after traumatic events and help clients rebuild and work towards a happy and healthy life.

The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) program at The Hospital of Central Connecticut is an outpatient program that is federally-funded by the Office of Victim Services.

Services are not billed through insurance to maintain confidentiality. VOCA is open to anyone in Connecticut, but the services must be provided either virtually or at The Hospital of Central Connecticut.
