NCALL Announces the Release of the Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors toolkit!
NCALL, in partnership with the OVC-funded National Resource Center on Reaching Victims (NRC), is excited to announce the release of the Increasing Access to Healing Services and Just Outcomes for Older African American Crime Survivors toolkit.
This toolkit uses a critical framework and an intersectional lens to examine the nexus of race, age, class, and victimization, and the systemic barriers older African American victims of crime face when seeking supports and services from the crime victim assistance field. The toolkit has three parts, including a guide with content modules, a workbook with reflection questions, and a library of video clips. The toolkit’s content is guided by video clips of older survivors sharing their stories and an expert panel providing insight into best practices for enhancing services to older African American victims. The tool also offers practical strategies to help victim services providers and criminal justice systems stakeholders better identify, reach, and serve older African American victims.

If you would like to explore additional resources to better identify, reach, and serve older crime victims, please visit the Resource Library on the Reaching Victims website and select “older adults” in the search bar.
