The Linking Systems of Care for Children and Youth (LSC) is a demonstration project designed to support and document the work of statewide initiatives as they promote healing for victims of crime by developing and coordinating trauma-informed prevention and intervention services for these children and youth and their families.
Four states—Illinois, Montana, Ohio, and Virginia—were selected to participate in planning and implementing reforms. States are currently being funded to identify young victims of crime proactively and work holistically with their families and communities to address their needs. Each state is approaching their work differently, unified by the LSC Guiding Principles and a “No Wrong Door” approach to victim services.
The Linking Systems of Care is conducting its annual All Sites Meeting virtually this year, December 2-4, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. PST each of those days. Anyone interested in linked systems of care for children and youth are welcomed to attend. Sessions will include:
- Centering in Times of Uncertainty: Self Care and Secondary Trauma
- Judicial Leadership: Panel Discussion on the Role of Judges in Large-Scale Systems Change Work
- Beyond Translating: Making our Work Meaningful to Cultures and Communities
- Supporting a Youth Advisory Board
- Leading with Cultural Competence
