BACKGROUND INFO

The primary purpose of the UV Program is to provide victim advocacy and outreach to the unserved/underserved population of youth and teens of Tehama County. This will establish victim advocacy positions solely dedicated to the youth and teen population. Services to the youth and teen population include the coordination of direct services in an enhanced response to victimization of this specific crime population among local involved agencies, and to implement an outreach awareness program to the specific population determined as unserved/underserved. This grant provides support for communities to improve their ability to identify the needs of unserved/underserved victims in California.
