Crime victim services providers, advocates, VOCA administrators, and other stakeholders and professionals within the crime victims field need resources and critical information to address the systemic barriers faced by older victims seeking access to healing supports and just outcomes. The capacity of service providers and stakeholders to understand the unique dynamics at play for older crime survivors, especially older survivors for marginalized communities, is critical to ensuring they can minimize the risk of future harm and access justice.
NCALL was a lead partner on older adults for the National Resource Center on Reaching Victims (NRC). NCALL’s work on this project focuses on enhancing the capacity of criminal justice systems advocates and stakeholders to identify, reach, and serve all victims, especially those from communities that too often have less access to healing services and avenues to justice.
