Legal Assistance to Victims Partnership
The West Virginia Legal Assistance to Victims Partnership provides direct civil legal assistance and advocacy services statewide to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence. The partnership supports the work of 14 regional direct service teams of attorneys and advocates providing comprehensive, coordinated services to assist victims in attaining long-term self-sufficiency and independence from abuse. A team response is used to promote victim safety and maximizes options for self-sufficiency and empowerment.
