“It is important that no person be victimized by the very system supposedly in place to protect all.”

In every county in this country, through the prosecuting attorney's office, there is a victim’s advocate to assist the victim or their families through the entire legal process. However there is no one to assist the "other victim" - the family members of those accused, or convicted of a crime. TOVA was founded for the purpose of being the advocate for the other victim by offering a 24 hour a day service providing immediate, ongoing and continuous assistance to the family members of those accused of a crime, and to see the family member through the entire process which will help balance the scales of justice.

When a person is arrested and charged with a crime, the family of the accused has nowhere to turn, and, in so many cases, has never had to deal with the judicial system. They are left alone, and many times shunned by society by their mere association with the accused. The judicial system is a very complex system and is not easily understood by a person that has never had to deal with it, therefore, TOVA is in place to educate family members and assist them in getting the help that they need through crisis intervention, education and guidance.

TOVA is available for educational purposes by reaching out into our communities to address the issues of crime and the ultimate consequences that affect so many. TOVA is also available to act as a liaison between the family member of the accused and their attorney, with proper releases signed, to ensure that everything that can be done legally is being done. Early intervention in a criminal case can balance the scales of justice by achieving fairness and equal justice. It is important that no person be victimized by the very system supposedly in place to protect all.
