Welcome to the Victim Assistance Academy of Nevada



Fifth Annual Victim Assistance Academy of Nevada (VAAN)

Weaving a Tapestry of Advocacy in Nevada



The Nevada Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS), in partnership with public, private and statewide agencies, is excited to be holding the fourth Annual Victim Assistance Academy of Nevada (VAAN)! 

  We believe this academy will be valuable to each agency and individuals who serve victims of crime.  The Steering Committee has made it a priority to work creatively and individually with those wanting to attend but face some of the issues above.  If you are interested in attending or sending someone from your agency to VAAN, please contact VAAN@dcfs.nv.gov by email so we can discuss how we may be able to help.  We are working with service providers around the state on some creative solutions to assist other agencies.  We realize there may be some unique geographical challenges but let us try to help make this training opportunity a reality.
