Mission

Mission Statement

Network  of Victim Assistance (NOVA) supports, counsels and empowers victims of sexual  assault and other serious crimes in Bucks County and works to prevent and  eliminate violence in society through advocacy, training, community education  and prevention programs.

Founded in 1974, NOVA is a non-profit 501 (c) (3), community-based organization. Services are made possible through the financial support of federal, state, and local government grants and contracts, United Way of Bucks County, corporations, foundations, and private donations.

NOVA Values

We  believe that all individuals should be empowered to make decisions about their  lives, to be secure from violation of their bodies and personal space, and to  live in a society free from violence.  We further believe that society has  a responsibility to educate and support individuals with regard to these  rights.

Therefore,  NOVA will serve the Bucks County community by providing direct support to  victims of sexual assault and other personal violations and advancing the rights of victims through advocacy and prevention education programs. In these  efforts, NOVA will strive to develop programs and services which empower  individuals and promote respect for the privacy, uniqueness and dignity of all  people.

NOVA Vision

NOVA  envisions a society free of violence, one that empowers individuals and  promotes respect for the privacy, diversity and dignity of all people.
