Tri-County Community Action Agency’s Elder Victim of Crime Act Program, or VOCA, is funded by the State of Rhode Island, Department of Public Safety, to assist elders who have been victims of crime. Our staff of caring advocates will work with you to guide you through the legal process, assist with any emergency needs you might have, and connect you with additional resources whenever needed. Our advocacy team will also offer education and mentoring in the hope that our clients will be protected from any future victimization. The Program is in accordance with the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 and attempts to aid elders in securing a just resolution to their victimization.
Tri-County programs are available to individuals who qualify based on program guidelines. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, handicap (disability), veteran status, pregnancy, marital status, genetic information, medical condition, sexual orientation, limited English proficiency (LEP) or any other status protected under Federal and state law.
