DV LEAP joins the Victim Legal Network of DC (VLNDC)

DV LEAP is so excited to join the Victim Legal Network of DC!

The Victim Legal Network of DC (VLNDC) is a network of legal service providers in DC that provide legal assistance to victims of crime in DC. The network provides victims of crime with access to 20 different legal service organizations that can provide legal help in a variety of issues including (but not limited to) family law, domestic violence, immigration, and crime victims’ rights. When a victim contacts VLNDC, they strive to connect the victim to any member organizations that may be able to assist them with their pending legal needs. If the network cannot assist them, they will provide the victim with other resources to explore.

More information about the network and the member directory can be found here.
