Victim Assistance Support
Harm happened in isolation, Healing can happen together.
For those who have suffered abuse by clergy residing in the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, we invite you to join virtually on August 24 at 7pm. Spouses and affected community members are also welcome. These gatherings, led by an independent facilitator, will offer a safe environment for participants to connect, share experiences, support, and heal. For information to or attend, call the Victim Assistance Coordinator at (877) 887-9603 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Any individual who has been sexually abused by a priest, deacon, religious, lay employee or volunteer of the diocese is urged to report abuse directly to law enforcement, including Child Protective Services (CPS) at 1-800-552-7096, and by calling the Virginia Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1-833-454-9064. Individuals are also encouraged to contact the 24-hour confidential diocesan Victim Assistance Reporting (VAC) number at 1-877-887-9603 or email email@example.com.
