Victims Assistance Program

CAMBA’s Victim Assistance (VAP)  will complete intake for new clients with signature verification via email or photos.  Our services include advocacy and case management services.  Regarding the Office for Victim Services (OVS) compensation claims, OVS will continue to operate during this health emergency, including processing emergency awards.  The Sexual Assault Hotline will remain available at 1-800-310-2449.

If you are a victim of a crime, or a family member of someone who has been victimized, please call (718) 282-5575 weekdays between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. to speak to a CAMBA case worker who can help you.

If you have been raped and need assistance, please call us toll-free at (800) 310-2449. Our trained rape crisis counselors are available to help you 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

The New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NYSCASA) want you to lend your voice to the Survivors’ Agenda. This is a first-ever crowdsourced agenda about building power and changing the conversation–especially for those most marginalized and kept down by the structural oppressions of our society.
