Services for Crime Victims, 2019   [open pdf - 495KB]

From the Document: "Victim service providers (VSPs) delivered an average of 27 services to meet the critical needs of crime victims in 2019. Tribal VSPs reported providing the most services on average (32), followed by nonprofit or faith-based VSPs (29). Hospital, medical, or emergency; governmental; and campus VSPs provided 22 to 24 services on average in 2019. Findings in this report are based on the 2019 National Survey of Victim Service Providers (NSVSP), which examined a representative sample of VSPs from the roster developed for the 2017 National Census of Victim Service Providers. From May to November 2019, the NSVSP gathered information on the characteristics and functions of VSPs and the types of victims they served. Data were also collected on the services that victims commonly sought and found difficult to obtain locally, as well as the types of agencies that referred victims to VSPs. VSPs reported information from their most recent 12 months of calendar year or fiscal year data to the survey, depending on how they operated. Therefore, the 2019 survey covers VSP operations between 2018 and 2019."
