National Strategy Sessions on Sustaining Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic

How do we stay connected with survivors and continue to provide support, especially to those with the fewest resources and greatest needs, while keeping our programs, staff, and communities healthy?

The National Resource Center for Reaching Victims is hosting a series of strategy sessions to bring people in the crime victims field together to tap into our collective strength and creativity to solve the unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic together. Each strategy session feature a different set of panelists. Panelists discuss the impact COVID-19 is having on crime survivors and their access to victim services, police, courts, hospitals, and other vital systems of support. They also answer attendees’ most pressing questions.
