VICTIM LEGAL NETWORK FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (VLNDC)

JRSA is the research partner for a project funded by the Office of Justice Program's Office for Victims of Crime to develop a Victim Legal Network for the District of Columbia (VLNDC). JRSA is working with the District's Office of Victim Services (OVS) and Network for Victim Recovery (NVRDC). The goal of the project is to expand the capacity of District service providers to provide legal education and services on an array of legal issues for victims of any type of crime. JRSA will conduct a needs assessment of legal services and victim legal needs in DC. Using the needs assessment results, JRSA, in conjunction with NVRDC, OVS, and the project's Steering Committee, will develop an implementation plan for expanding the capacity of legal services providers within the District to provide victim-focused legal services. Through JRSA's independent observation, VLNDC hopes to close potential service gaps, maximize capacity of service providers, and create a truly holistic system of legal assistance for victims of crime.
