The goal is to examine the effectiveness of advocacy using: (1) the rate of completed prosecution and the rate of guilty findings or pleas of guilty- (2) the rate of repeat victimization measured by victim reports, police call reports, arrests, warrant requests, and perceived safety of victims- and (3) satisfaction with services offered. The project will include an ongoing process and outcome evaluation of the efficacy of advocacy services, consisting of formative reports to provide feedback for practitioners and a reference point for interpreting outcomes. The outcome evaluation will employ a quasi-experimental design to include victim surveys and archival research.
