Welcome to the CSVANW Advocate Corner. This section is dedicated to resources and services that are available to advocates assisting individuals in seeking safety and to victims and survivors who are on the same mission and seeking a place to start.
While the Coalition is not a direct service provider, we are here to help connect individuals to the resources that they need including shelters, legal services, and Crime Victim Reparations (including emergency funding). Please explore our resource list to find the information that you are seeking and if you need further assistance please contact one of the hotlines listed below or our CSVANW offices from 9a-4p Monday-Friday and ask to speak with the Advocate Coordinator. Thank you.
Crime Victims Reparation and Emergency Funding
The New Mexico Crime Victims Reparation Commission (CVRC) was formed in 1981 under the Crime Victims Reparation Act to assist victims of violent crime with expenses incurred as a result of their victimization. There are two different forms of funding available through the CVRC. While Reparation funding can be sought by an individual directly from the CVRC, emergency funding must be applied for by a service provider on behalf of the individual that is seeking safety. Each county area has its own provider. Please contact the CVRC directly to locate the provider for your location. 1-800-306-6262 www.cvrc.state.nm.us/cvrc-application/
Service Providers that are also CSVANW Members

They also carry a wealth of knowledge and may be able to help you locate resources and other means of safety.
