- OVS Training and OutreachAs part of the Crime Victim Legal Network team's continuous efforts to ensure that the online resource, NY Crime Victims Legal Help , is responsive to the needs of our audience, we are planning to conduct focus groups with service providers in the next couple of months. The purpose of the groups is to obtain feedback from providers about enhancements to content and design that we have made recently and to provide input on modifications we are considering. The groups will be conducted virtually and will only last an hour at most. We are looking for feedback from human services providers who directly serve victims of crime, and also those who do not directly serve victims but who may encounter individuals who have been victimized (e.g. those who serve the homeless). If you are willing to participate, please contact, Susan Ehrhard-Dietzel, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, SUNY Albany Center for Human Services Research at email@example.com Thank you for your continued support, and we hope that you would consider sharing this request within your community network.Like
