EVMS (Elder Victim Mobile Support)
EVMS (Elder Victim Mobile Support) is a program funded by the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) via the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) that addresses and overcomes barriers facing the 60 and over community in Montgomery County who have been affected by crime. These barriers include gaps in identifying and reporting of crimes and/or abuse, gaps in accessing victim services, and gaps in services due to limited resources.
The EVMS program provides FREE MOBILE THERAPY and supportive services to any resident of Montgomery County 60 years and older who has been a victim of a crime (past or present, reported or unreported). These confidential services are facilitated by our Licensed and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional therapists with extensive trauma-focused training.
