How To Use This Guide
There is no one size fits all to creating networked legal services for crime victims. Each community has unique victims’ needs, existing service capacities, and opportunities for collaboration. These differences mean that every network will be created through a different path and operate differently. This online Guide is an abridged version of the Guide for Developing a Victim Legal Assistance Network. This Guide draws upon the experience of ten OVC-funded Victim Legal Assistance Networks, reflecting upon the successes, challenges, lessons learned, and promising practices to present key questions, considerations and resources to inform the process of establishing a network of legal services for crime victims.
