Expanding the Circle to Reach Young Victims of Crime

Expanding the Circle to Reach Young Victims of Crime

Our Nation's children and youth experience crime and victimization at alarming rates. The OVC-funded Vision 21: Linking Systems of Care for Children and Youth demonstration project brings statewide systems together to coordinate efforts that ensure a timely and seamless response for children and their families.

One of the grantees in this project, the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, recently released a series of articles to commemorate 2018 National Crime Victims' Rights Week and this year's theme–Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims.

These articles, authored by Linking Systems of Care Steering Committee members, discuss how their field seeks to "expand the circle" and "reach all victims" in vulnerable populations and how this work ties into the goals of the project.

Visit the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges site to read the articles, including several that were authored by OVC fellows:
