Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $2,000,000)
The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is committed to enhancing the nations capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims of crime. The OVC FY 2018 Advancing Hospital-Based Victim Services Demonstration Initiative seeks to improve linkages between the victim services field and hospitals and other medical facilities to increase support for victims of crime, improve victim outcomes, reduce chances of further victimization, and provide dedicated technical assistance resources to support these efforts.
With this award, Community Partners will provide comprehensive technical assistance and support to the demonstration sites funded through this same solicitation. The organization was developed through an innovative partnership between the National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs, Youth Alive, Cure Violence, Futures Without Violence, and the San Francisco Trauma Recovery Center. Their extensive experience will be used to provide TA support to the demonstration sites in a variety of methods including monthly calls, peer learning exchanges, on site visits, and online through web meetings and e-bulletins. In addition they will develop a toolkit for policymakers and state VOCA agencies to promote strategies to improve victim outcomes.
