Our History

The Missouri Victim Assistance Network (MOVA) was conceived in 1983 when the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) encouraged the state of Missouri to develop a statewide coalition of victim service providers. In 1984, the Governor’s Crime Commission and the State Department of Public Safety sponsored the first annual Victim Seminar in Missouri. Participants at that conference organized a planning committee to lay the groundwork for MOVA.
