Arizona Voice for Crime Victims (ACVC) was established in 1996. AVCV collaborated with ASU College of Law to form the Crime Victims' Legal Assistance Project.  The Crime Victims' Legal Assistance project utilizes pro bono lawyers and law students to provide legal advocacy and social services to crime victims.  Social workers and student interns provide necessary social service support and advocacy throughout the criminal justice process. AVCV volunteers teach law students and lawyers about victim rights. AVCV's goal is to advocate on behalf of crime victims and to increase the Nation’s and State’s awareness of victims’ rights. AVCV also provides social service support and crisis intervention to victims of crime.

AVCV services are available to all crime victims in the state of Arizona. AVCV also provides victims rights training to lawyers, victim advocates, students, the judiciary, law enforcement, and business and community leaders throughout the state of Arizona.

To achieve this purpose, AVCV has four major areas of activities:

  1. Free legal representation in the criminal justice system for crime victims.
  2. Crisis intervention and social service support for victims throughout the justice process.
  3. Educational programs that focus on victims’ rights and advocacy.
  4. Collaborative community programs that integrate other victim services organizations throughout Arizona.

The office is located at ASU College of Law in Tempe, and is staffed during business hours Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm. The phone number is (480) 965-5640 and the Arizona Voice for Crime Victim number is (480)600-2661. Voice mail is available, and is checked regularly. The office is closed on all major holidays. We can also be reached via email, mwallace@voiceforvictims.org.

HomeBase Youth Services maintains three facilities in which programs are administered in the Phoenix metropolitan area: the Outreach Center, the Nicholas Transitional Living Center, and the Independent Living Center. HomeBase offers a complete continuum of care for at-risk and homeless youth. Programs include Prevention, Street Outreach, Mobile Medical Outreach, an Outreach Center, a Transitional Living Program, an Independent Living Program, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Life and Employment Skills Training, Education Services and Workforce Initiative.

HomeBase Youth Services' comprehensive programs address the interrelated problems of homelessness, drug addiction, mental illness and crime victimization in an environment in which youth feel safe and are willing to accept help.
