Crime Victim Assistance Program
In partnership with the NYPD, Safe Horizon created The Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) that will place two Safe Horizon advocates in every NYPD police precinct in the coming years.
Safe Horizon launched the Young Men of Color pilot project to enhance services to young men of color harmed by crime and abuse.
Safe Horizon joined experts from organizations throughout the City to form “The Young Men of Color Working Group” in late 2015. Statistics indicate that young black and Latino men are more likely to be victimized by crime than any other age, racial, or gender demographic group. Safe Horizon is addressing this problem head-on. Since creation, the group has been hard at work to identify and explore effective outreach methods to engage young men, remove barriers to services, and provide assistance.
