dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract The National Center and NCAVP began this collaborative survey and report to gain a better understanding of the victim services provided to LGBTQ victims of crime throughout the United States. The focus of this joint policy report is on the crimes of hate violence and intimate partner violence against LGBTQ people, because these are the crimes that are most reported to NCVAP programs. This report confirms that gaps in services for LGBTQ victims of violence exist and shows the need for culturally competent service provision through LGBTQ and mainstream service providers’ collaboration. This report first presents a brief overview of what we know through published literature on hate violence and intimate partner violence against LGBTQ people. Next, there is a discussion about why more is not known about the victimization of LGBTQ people and the responses to them. Existing research gaps reflect a dearth of information about the experiences of victim assistance agencies and anti-violence programs in responding to crime against LGBTQ people. To learn more about the current state of services provided to LGBTQ victims, the National Center and NCAVP conducted surveys of victim assistance providers and LGBTQ anti-violence programs to begin to fill this knowledge gap. This report reviews key findings from the surveys as well as highlights relevant comments supplied by survey respondents. (Author Text) en_US
