HARTFORD The Connecticut Office of Victim Services (OVS) is providing help to Connecticut residents affected by Tuesday's tragedy. OVS provides services, referrals to non-profit and public organizations and information on victim rights and resources. OVS may be reached at 1-800-822-8428 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

The Office of Victim Services may assist Connecticut residents who were injured or who lost a loved one in this tragedy by providing counseling referrals and assistance regarding financial compensation. OVS Victim Advocacy staff may refer families to counseling services and to support groups that are dedicated to the needs of those who have lost a loved one from homicide.
