Although not exhaustive, these principles provide guidance for service providers in their efforts to link systems of care for youth and children exposed to violence, as well as for their families.
Abstract
The OVC-sponsored Vision 21 Linking Systems of Care for Children and Youth Program designed these Guiding Principles to: provide guidance for service providers assisting children and youth exposed to violence and their families and caregivers; offer a benchmark for conducting community needs assessments, and developing policies, and protocols; and help community collaboratives shape, inform, and review services and referrals to address children and youth exposed to violence.
