dc.description.abstract On behalf of the Iowa Attorney General’s Office Crime Victim Assistance Division (CVAD), the ICF research team was tasked with conducting a needs assessment of victim service providers and crime victims across the state of Iowa. Funded in Fall 2015, the purpose of the needs assessment is to ensure that all CVAD programs and services are responsive to the needs of crime victims and service providers in Iowa. This needs assessment comprised of two core components: a survey of service providers and allied professionals, and focus groups and phone interviews with crime victims. ICF conducted a statewide survey of service providers to assess the experiences and perspectives of service providers related to the needs of crime victims. A subset of these services providers, and a few additional providers recommended by CVAD, assisted with identifying crime victims interested in participating in this project. ICF conducted focus groups and phone interviews with any crime victim that was willing and able to participate to add a firsthand account of crime victims’ experiences with service provision in Iowa. This report provides an overview of the methodology and findings from both components of data collection, and offers recommendations for service improvement throughout the state. It also includes the data visualization tools created to allow CVAD and the field to use the information gathered and create customized figures and tables. (Author Text) en_US
