Who We Are
The Common Denominator
Lubbock Victim Assistance Services, Inc was founded in 1993 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
We work along side local law enforcement, the District Attorney's Office, and the Texas Attorney General's Office to advocate for victims and their families.
Here at LVAS we fight to ensure that all victims are treated with fairness, dignity and compassion by the criminal justice system and /or all other agencies involved. We strive to be the one common denominator for the victims of violent crime and family survivors of homicide.
