Center For Counseling and Victims’ Services


The Washington County Board of Commissioners approved the creation of the Center for Victims’ Services (CVS) in 1998 and the Center opened its doors in December 1999.  In 2011, the Center expanded to include our Volunteer and Counseling program, and it is now called the Counseling & Victims' Services program (CVS).

The Mission of CVS 

Our mission is to provide counseling, advocacy, education, and referral services that help liberate people from the effects of criminal harm, encourage healthy relationships, and promote a responsible community.

CVS works to support victims, to advocate for human rights, to reduce the effects and risks of harm, to provide public education, and to facilitate a strong and healing community.  CVS also partners closely with government and community partners to encourage a network of care.

The Center is a dynamic, creative, and evolving program; committed to the expansion of victims’ resources, the promotion of psychological and social health, and education for the community.
