New Project for Underserved Populations


The Center for Innovation and Resources, Inc. (CIR), has received funding through the Victims of Crime Act Training Program of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). The Underserved Populations Training Project will focus on four distinct underserved populations: victims with disabilities, male victims, LGBTQ victims, and foster youth victims. The project will provide training and technical assistance to victim service providers in order to increase their ability to effectively serve underserved victims in the four identified population groups.

CIR is seeking a group of dynamic and diverse experts to work as independent contractors and serve as instructors and consultants to constituents. We will be conducting introductory and advanced in-person and online trainings, as well as webinar trainings.
