Hope Research Center | 2024 National Crime Victims' Service Awards

The Hope Research Center partners with service organizations to develop, test, and implement a trauma-informed and hope-centered framework to improve outcomes for victims and their families. This research also examines hope as a protective factor against burnout, secondary traumatic stress, and turnover among service providers. The Center offers hope research strategies, including evaluations and applied research projects customized to the needs of an organization and focused on improving program services and achieving client outcomes.

The Hope Research Center is the recipient of the 2024 Building Knowledge Through Research Award. Visit the OVC Gallery for more information about the center’s work to support victims of crime and the work of other recipients of the National Crime Victims’ Service Awards.
