LGBTQ+ Victim Advocacy Initiative at Eskenazi Health | 2022 National Crime Victims' Service Awards

In less than a year, the Gender Health Victim Advocates at Eskenazi Health have provided nearly 200 services to more than 131 transgender and non-binary victims of violence, abuse, and neglect. Eskenazi’s innovative approach to delivering services to LGBTQ+ patients through dedicated and specially trained advocates has improved both short- and long-term outcomes for these victims of violence, and demonstrated the clear need for victim advocates and life-saving services for the LGBTQ+ community.

LGBTQ+ Victim Advocacy Initiative at Eskenazi Health received the Award for Professional Innovation in Victim Services. Visit the OVC Gallery for more information about her work to support victims of crime.
