We are optimistic and are hopeful that this survey will allow us to gather the information we need to truly create a Victim Services Program within the Tribe that will be helpful to victims of crime in the Hopi/Tewa communities. For those of you new to the Hopi Victim Services Program and what we are looking to accomplish, the description and the link to the webinar is below: 

The Hopi Department of Public Safety and Emergency Services in partnership with the Hopi Tewa Women’s Coalition to End Abuse hosted an informational webinar on the Hopi Tribe’s new Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Tribal Victim Services Set Aside grant and it’s mission to create Hopi’s very first Tribal Victim Services Program. We invite you to learn more about this program with presenters who have instrumental hands-on in this project including the Hopi Tribe’s Director of Public Safety and Emergency Services, Jamie Navenma.

The webinar will cover the following:

  • The history of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) and its purpose
  • Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Tribal Set Aside grant program and current Hopi award
  • A historical milestone for the Hopi Tribe in receiving these funds
  • Hopi Tribe’s Tribal Victim Service Set-Aside grant and its goals for a new Tribal Victim Services Program
