Service Providers wanted for a focus group

The Center for Human Services Research at SUNY Albany, Empire Justice Center, NYS Office of Victims Services, and Pro Bono Net are hosting focus groups – one with crime victims & one with service providers – to better understand the current needs of crime victims in our State. The information from the focus groups will help inform how an on-line resource could assist crime victims get the civil legal services they need.

For the Service Provider focus group, we are looking for non-attorney professionals (social workers, advocates, mental health &/or substance abuse counselors, health care professionals, etc.) who have worked with victims of crime. The group will be held in Buffalo on Monday, 8/15/16, 3-4:30pm, at Meals on Wheels, 100 James E. Casey Dr., Buffalo 14206.   

For the crime victim focus group, we are looking for people who are at least 18 years old who have been victims of crime (assault, robbery, family violence, identity theft, etc.).  The group will be held in Buffalo on Monday, 8/15/16, 5-6:30pm, at Meals on Wheels, 100 James E. Casey Dr., Buffalo 14206.  If you have clients who are crime victims, please share this information with them.   

Names and other identifying information will not be recorded.  People must be 18 years or older, and English speaking. A maximum of 12 people will be in each group. Light refreshments will be provided.
