Over the past 45 years, the crime victims’ movement has made great strides toward meeting victims’ needs and has emerged as a powerful source of social, legal, and political change. Despite these advances, crime and violence continue to affect a significant number of people in the United States each year, and challenges to providing appropriate services for all victims persist. Although a variety of critical services exist for some crime victims, many marginalized people who experience violence often are left without adequate resources, support, and treatment options. Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services sought to dramatically expand the vision and impact of the crime victim services field in order to meet the needs of all crime victims. It sought to do so by strategically defining the role of the victim services field in the nation’s efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of communities.
