Intensive Case Management for Victims of Crime
Principal Investigator: Alyssa A. Rheingold, Ph.D. <bio sketch> <e-mail>Despite the well-established fact that crime victimization is associated with myriad psychosocial difficulties, many victims are reluctant and/or unable to seek appropriate care. Crime victims in South Carolina have been especially affected by the current national economic difficulties, highlighting the need to continue to direct efforts to ensure victims' needs are met. The primary purpose of this project is to continue the use of VOCA funds to maintain our abilities to provide intensive case management to victims of crime in the Charleston tri-county area. The addition of these services (which has included a full-time Intensive Case Manager, Project Director, and volunteers) has significantly improved the level and quality of care we provide to crime victims. This position also has enabled us to provide an integrated, coordinated resource network throughout the tri-county area. Because of budget cuts and difficult economic times, we are well aware of the importance of maintaining this position to ensure that victims receive needed services.
