Mission
Victim Rights Center of Connecticut, Inc. (VRCCT) provides quality, no-fee legal support to victims of sexual assault, child sexual assault, child abuse,  violence against those identifying as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer, elder abuse, & homicide .
VRCCT is the only organization providing no-fee comprehensive legal services  to victims of violent crime in New Haven, Hartford, Middlesex and eastern Fairfield Counties in Connecticut. 
Background
Victims of violence are not merely witnesses to their own crime. They are profoundly affected in every aspect of their lives. Victim Rights Center was created to provide legal and emotional support otherwise not available to crime victims, without regard to income.  VRCCT helps victims interact with police, prosecutors and the criminal justice system, protecting their Constitutional Rights and privacy concerns, but VRCCT also does a great deal more. We help a rape victim escape the apartment in which she was raped, in a building still housing the rapist. We protect children in family court from being forced to visit the father who abused them. We fight bullying on social media of a 12 year old who reported that she was raped by popular high school students. We advocate for mentally challenged victims whose special needs are misunderstood by government agencies who are supposed to protect them. We have helped a transgender client fight workplace sexual discrimination. We protected a homicide victim from invasions of her personal and medical privacy rights. 
Executive Director Jim Clark founded Victim Rights Center of CT after a career spent prosecuting violent criminals and learning from those victims. For three years at the JAG Legal Center & School, he taught Army lawyers about sexual assault, victim and offender behavior, and programs for victims of crime.  The next step was to provide direct legal services to crime victims. VRCCT is the only non-profit in Connectucut which provides no-fee comprehensive civil and criminal legal services to victims of sexual assault, child abuse, violence against LGBTs, elder abuse, and homicide 
Every crime victim needs an attorney to assure respectful treatment by law enforcement, to protect their privacy from unnecessary disclosures or invasions, to help keep them safe, to limit publicity & bullying on social media, and to help them navigate the many disruptions in life caused by the crime that has traumatized them. 
Sensitivity to the effects of trauma, an understanding of how the law can help crime victims, and freedom from lawyer's fees are hallmarks of VRCCT's service to the community. 
Impact
Accomplishments:
1. Secured a two-year grant of $352,000 from Office of Violence Against Women to hire two attorneys to provide holistic legal services focused on sexual assault and LGBTQ victims of violence. Hired two outstanding attorneys, Maura Crossin & Hannah Reischer, who now ably serve victims of crime. 
2. Fully represented more than 85 victims of violent crime in 2016 alone. We represented these clients with a full array of legal issues: criminal court; compensation; protective orders; child custody & visitation; college discipline hearings; employment discrimination; labor board hearings; housing concerns; high school education rights. We also provided legal advice to several dozen victims who did not require full representation.
3. Maintain formal Memoranda of Understanding with five sexual assault crisis organizations (New Britain-Hartford Sexual Assault Crisis Services, Women & Families Center (New Haven, Meriden, Middletown), Center for Family Justice (Bridgeport), Rape Crisis Center of Milford, Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury, and with the CT Alliance to End Sexual Violence.
4. Expanded our network of referring agencies to include  Junta for Progressive Action (New Haven), Family Centered Services, IIConn, and others. 
5. Provided victim-centered training to all sworn officer of the Hamden Police Department. Provided training about victim legal services to The Connection Conference, Wesleyan's Diversity department, to Fairfield University Title IX office, to UConn Diversity conference, and other organizations.
Goals:
1. Expand our services into all of Fairfield County by establishing an office and hiring an additional attorney in that part of the state . 
2. Connect with Elder Services organizations and realize our mission goal to identify and represent victims of elder abuse. To represent more victims of homicide.
3. Expand our recruitment and training of pro bono attorneys who will represent crime victims . Our current small group includes attorneys specializing in specialized areas such as immigration and discrimination law.  
4. Expand existing training to law enforcement and prosecutors in victimology, appropriate victim interviewing, and investigation to improve investigative outcomes and to increase victim cooperation. 
5. Identify and secure funding to expand services to young children who are sexually abused, or who are bullied at school or on social media.  
Needs
1. Capacity building: VRCCT has obtained grants to support direct services, but we remain an organization without support staff. Executive Director James Clark provides experienced supervision of all our legal cases, but also must attend to all administrative tasks,, which distract from the time available for training and direct services to crime victims. Need: Director of Development $65,000 salary, $10,000 benefits package. 
2. Interpretation services: part-time bilingual para-legal who can interpret for our Spanish-speaking clients. Telephone interpretation services: Paralegal, half-time: $17500 salary 2700 benefits. Contract services : $3600
3. Investigator: VRCCT needs a trauma-informed investigator to complete inadequate investigations to allow VRCCT to present a case for protection of victims and society to prosecuting authorities, and to. A gather information to support protective orders, sexual harassment cases, and child custody disputes. $45,000 salary; $6800 benefits. 
4. Volunteer coordinator : $15-20,000 + benefits. 
5. Executive Director: A full or part-time Executive Director could free our founder to be an attorney and educator (his skillsets) rather than an administrator. $50,000 (full) $35,000 (part-time) plus 15% benefits ($7500/$5250).
 
CEO Statement

Since I founded Victim Rights Center of Connecticut in 2013, we have proven that many crime victims need the kind of legal help that we provide. We continually work to expand our network of providers to enable us to reach all communities. We have successfully connected to dozens of agencies working with victims, and referrals grow every day. We were fortunate to receive a major grant from Office of Violence Against Women to support the work of two attorneys. We have formal agreements with several organizations, including an exciting partnership with Family Justice Center in Bridgeport, bringing our holistic legal services to Fairfield County. As we grow, the need for support staff -- an Executive Director and Development professional -- becomes more crucial to our survival. Those positions will allow our lawyers to focus their efforts on direct services that protect victims’ rights, interact with police and prosecutors, advocate for safety and assist with employment, education and housing.

Like many non-profits, VRCCT is constantly living on a financial edge. If VRCCT is not there to do this work, it will not get done. Victim Rights Center is the only organization of its kind in Connecticut, and one of less than a handful nationwide. 

VRCCT can meet this need only with broad-based help from generous donors in the community – whether individuals, corporations, or public entities. We are a very frugal organization, with donated offices and salaries for our attorneys that are well below the norm for the profession. But we cannot work without funds, and we have chosen to provide our services at no cost to under-served and economically disadvantaged populations.

I have been dedicated to helping victims since I co-founded a temporary restraining order clinic for battered women in 1979 when I was a law student. I remained energized during my 27 years as a prosecutor by in large part because I could be a voice for victims in the criminal courts.

My cases as a prosecutor, however, were the ones where things went right: the police or other government agencies believed a crime had occurred, investigated, and an arrest was made. At Victim Rights Center I have been humbled and upset by the many cases where institutions created to protect victims have not done so. We battle every day to try to correct these systemic errors by advocating for survivors with the police, child protective services, and the courts. It is important to note that the dedicated professionals in these organizations care about the public and work hard to protect them. But there is not enough training available about the effects of trauma on victim behavior and the proper way to do a victim-informed investigation. VRCCT works daily to fill that training and education gap, but there is a long way to go.

We hope that you can help us expand our direct services to victims of violent crime to serve every victim in the state who needs legal help. At the same time, please support our efforts to bring evidence-based information about victims to all who serve to protect the public.
Board Chair Statement
Victim Rights Center of Connecticut successfully formed a non-profit that currently provides three lawyers to advocate on behalf of victims of crime. In  July of 2013 there was no firm in Connecticut providing these services to victims without financial means. Now there are three attorneys  who represent victims in a variety of contexts such as sexual assault and child abuse. Another one of VRCCT’s successes is that it is operating with a very low overhead. We have secured donated office space in Wallingford. Our utilities are free or low-cost. We unfortunately have no paid office staff. 
VRCCT’s major challenge is to raise enough money annually -- approximately $250,000  to fund – and to grow -- the services we provide. We are finding there is an overwhelming demand for legal assistance to victims. Our broad referral network among social services organizations, courts, and medical providers has greatly increased the number of victims who seek our services. We have reached capacity for current staff, and must occasionally turn needy victims away. We are steadily increasing our donor base, and have successfully sought funding from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County and the Connecticut Bar Foundation in the last year. We need a professional to guide our fund-raising efforts, but are caught in the bind of needing to raise money to support a person to raise money. 
We have expanded board membership to improve diversity, and we are pursuing further board expansion to include victims and victim-services professionals. We have an advisory board that consists of one of the nation’s leading experts in PTSD adn Resilience, Dr. Steven M. Southwick, Professor of Psychiatry at Yale, and Marji Lipshitz-Shapiro of ADL, a longtime expert on bullying.
I chose to become involved with VRCCT because of my admiration for and belief in its founder and executive director, Jim Clark. Over the course of a 27 year career, Jim became Connecticut’s top prosecutor. We met a long time ago through our membership on the Connecticut Bar Association’s Committee on Professional Ethics. I know Jim to be a very bright, principled, experienced, hardworking and determined lawyer; and the kind of person one would be fortunate to call a friend. The mission of Jim’s organization not only appealed to me immediately but also I believed that if anyone could create an organization to serve victims of child abuse and sexual assault that person would be Jim.
Our challenge is daunting but exciting. To a large extent victim rights is a new area of law. It takes commitment, creativity, determination and resilience when dealing with a legal system that does not yet quite know how to deal with victims as victims as distinguished from witnesses. VRCCT’s lawyers have those qualities.

VRCCT serves crime victims in Hartford, Middlesex, and Eastern Fairfield Counties, as well as Waterbury and other towns in New Haven County. Our goal is to expand our services to the entire State of Connecticut, beginning with the remainder of Fairfield County. 
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments Victim Rights Center of Connecticut provides comprehensive legal help to victims of violent crime, regardless of income. Our goal is to serve underrepresented and poor communities in Connecticut. We guard client privacy, assist with disruptions of housing, employment, school, and family life, and join with other social service organizations to minimize the affects of the trauma of victimization. 
Programs
Description Defending Victim Rights in Criminal Proceedings. Connecticut's Constitution grants victims of crime the right to be treated with dignity & respect, to notice, to consultation, to safety, and to restitution. VRCCT defends those rights: we counteract stereotyping and victim blaming; we protect confidential medical, school, psychological and other personal records from unauthorized disclosure; we ensure that all legal avenues for protection of victim safety are engaged; we press for restitution and aid with victim compensation.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state.
The Court system -- judges, prosecutors, probation officers, police -- will be more sensitive to the needs of crime victims, and will be diligent in assuring those victims' constitutional and statutory rights. Those rights include the right to be treated with dignity & respect, to be kept informed, to be consulted concerning the progress of the case and any disposition, and a right to restitution.  
Success will be measured by the number of crime victims whose rights are zealously protected, but also by the degree to which the system accepts and embraces the idea of individual victim representation. 
Description Understanding victim responses to a crime like sexual assault requires special training and an empathetic approach to the complexities of trauma. Many police, prosecutors and others who encounter victims are admirably well-acquainted with these issues and approach victims with compassion and understanding. An unfortunate number of those who encounter victims of sexual violence share a societal bias that mistrusts or blames women and children for their own victimization, or fails to acknowledge that unconventional behavior or poor decision-making by a victim does not excuse the actions of criminal. VRCCT can assist victims to communicate with service providers and police to encourage an understanding that non-comforming or counter-intuitive victim behaviors do not make the victim blameworthy or the criminal less culpable.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state. Success is likely to be measured based on test litigation to punish a select few who harass crime victims via social media and other forms of bullying. There is no victory in the world of bullying, just steps toward reducing its frequency and intensity. 
Description Of every 100 reports of sexual assault, only 40 are reported. Of those, only 10 lead to an arrest, and only 4 lead to a felony conviction. Children report even less frequently. When a biological parent is the abuser and there is no arrest, that parent frequently will petition the family court to grant unsupervised visitation with the child he or she has abused. Every other month VRCCT takes on a new client in exactly this shocking situation. We fight to convey to often skeptical judges the travesty of ordering a victim to go to the home of his/her abuser unprotected.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state. The court system will begin to understand the dynamics of child abuse, the frequency with which the criminal investigation fails, the reality that denials from"nice" men are no more credible than denials of other criminals. Family court personnel, including judges will learn that children rarely invent reports of sexual assault, and that children under 10 cannot be persuaded by others  to lie about sexual abuse. 
Examples of Program SuccessHelpOrganization's site specific examples of changes in clients' behaviors or testimonies of client's changes to demonstrate program success. VRCCT has represented four families, with nine children at risk of being ordered to visit with the person who sexually abused them. In two of those cases, intervention by VRCCT attorneys has led to court denial of visitation. Two cases are pending (9/2014). 
Description Students who are victims of sexual assault or sexual harassment have specific rights under Title IX in both college and pre-college schooling. We insure that schools understand the obligation to investigate allegations, provide for safety of the student, combat harassment and bullying, and punish the offenders. We counsel school victims on the option to report to law enforcement or to the school, or both. We assist victims in navigating the investigative process. We advocate with school officials to ensure that the offender is separated from the victim in both class and common areas. Victims also have rights to accommodation for missed or delayed academic work. Schools frequently need to be reminded of their Title IX obligations.

Long Term SuccessHelpOrganizations describe the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future and represent an ideal state. Public & private elementary and high schools will understand and effectuate their responsibilities under Title IX to protect victims of sexual abuse and harassment, investigate incidents, and punish offenders. While colleges generally have systems in place, most lower educational institutions do not. Our success will be measured both by the extent to which schools comply with their obligations in individual cases, and by the extent to which schools create protocols for incidents of sexual assault and harassment. 
Description Too often, overworked or under-trained investigators fail to understand the effects of trauma on survivors. Common reactions of people to traumatic events can appear counter-intuitive and lead investigators to question truthful reports of crime. Victim Rights Center engages with police and prosecutors to present an evidence-based picture of the crime that our clients have survived. This aspect of our work is the most difficult and sometimes frustrating. When VRCCT careful explains victim reactions and sensitively educates officers, the dedication of most investigators to discovery of the truth can lead to re-evaluation of prior conclusions and arrest of the perpetrator of violent crime.

Program Comments
CEO Comments
VRCCT is the only non-profit in Connecticut providing no-fee comprehensive legal services to our designated groups of victims of violent crime.
Need for capacity-building staff: VRCCT has been fortunate to secure funding for two attorneys for the next two years through a federal grant. This has allowed us to expand our network of "social service first responders," and we are serving more clients than ever before. 
Fund-raising vs. serving clients: as a micro-non-profit with an Executive Director/Senior Attorney and two Associate Attorneys, all administrative and fund-raising duties fall to the  Executive Director, but clients must always come first. The Executive Director has no background in fund-raising, and little time to dedicate to it while serving clients. Too little time, too little money. We obviously share this problem with many non-profits, but we must raise sufficient funds to allow a professional to pursue donations in a structured way. As we have grown, the need for an experienced administrator (Executive Director) has also become clear. 
Institutional resistance to victim rights attorneys: VRCCT is among a small group of non-profits inventing the legal field of victim representation. Police, courts, prosecutors and governmental agencies are unaccustomed to dealing with individual legal advocacy for crime victims. Some agencies have welcomed the additional resources, while others have been hostile. VRCCT's James Clark has developed training materials for law enforcement to enlighten them about the effects of trauma on victims, the tactics of offenders, and advanced investigation techniques in sexual violence cases. Supervision of attorneys and handling all administrative and fund-raising responsibilities leaves him very little time to pursue law enforcement training.
Other victims in need: VRCCT has chosen to focus our mission on victims of sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse, homicide and violence against LGBTs. We receive frequent calls asking us to represent victims of bullying and of domestic violence. We could easily employ ten additional attorneys if we were able to accept clients in these areas, where free legal assistance is basically non-existent. Turning away victims in need is stressful and sad. We would like to be able to expand our core competencies, and our geographical coverage. Until we secure funds to build the needed support staff for a growing organization, expansion will be difficult.

Experience
Attorney James Clark founded Victim Rights Center of Connecticut, the only non-profit in the state (and one of just a handful nationwide) providing comprehensive victim-centered no-fee legal representation to victims of violent crime, in July 2013.
Mr. Clark prosecuted violent crimes in Connecticut for more than twenty years, serving and interacting with victims on a daily basis, trying more than 85 felony cases to jury verdict.
In 2010, Attorney Clark was appointed as the first civilian professor at the US Army Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School in Charlottesville, Virginia as the subject matter expert on sexual assault, victim and offender behavior, and victims’ rights. He taught graduate-level legal courses on sexual assault and child sexual abuse. 
Mr. Clark is POST-certified to teach police officers about the neurobiology of trauma, rape myths, victim and offender behavior, trauma-informed interviewing and advanced sexual assault investigation. 
Mr. Clark first served victims of crime in 1979 when he co-founded the first Temporary Restraining Order clinic in the City of San Francisco.

Comments
CEO Comments VRCCT has done a remarkable job fulfilling its core mission to bring no-fee legal representation to a broad spectrum of victims of crime throughout central Connecticut. We are young and small, and have focused donations on client services. We need capacity-building assistance to allow us to add support staff who can insure our long-term success. Interpretation and translation for LEP clients is a continuing challenge, as no staff speak fluent Spanish, our most common non-English client language. Finding funding to do so is a priority this year.
