The Crime Victims Advocacy Network is a Federal and State-funded grant program working with those hurt or harmed by crime. CVAN is in Region 11 of the Statewide Crime Victim Service Center program, and provides trained victim advocates in Thurston, Mason, Grays Harbor, Pacific, and Lewis Counties. Victims do not have to report the crime or have a suspect identified to receive free services from CVAN Victim Advocates. The program offers a 24/7 victim assistance hotline, and has two offices in Thurston County. The main office is located in Building 2 in the county courthouse, with a satellite office located at the Family Justice Center in downtown Olympia.
