Please join representatives from the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance and ICF Incorporated, L.L.C. in a discussion on April 6, 2021 about upcoming exciting new research! ICF is conducting a second statewide needs assessment to explore the current nature of victimization and needs of victims/survivors across the Commonwealth, identify current strengths and gaps in service delivery for victims of crime, and examine client outcomes. This needs assessment will help demonstrate our successes and challenges since the first needs assessment in 2014 as well as inform future programming and funding needs.
ICF will share about efforts that will occur over the next year and a half to gather recommendations from programs about how to get involved with each stage of the assessment. The feedback that victim service providers and victims of crime provide is invaluable for improving services, better meeting the needs of both victims and service providers throughout the Commonwealth, identifying opportunities for capacity-building, and identify emerging priorities in the victim service field.
Join us for this workshop to contribute to the upcoming efforts and design of the assessment!
