Helping Everyone Access Linked Systems (Illinois HEALS) is multi-year initiative to address child and youth victimization.
Illinois HEALS will enlist experts, service providers, community groups, and other relevant stakeholders to
- Complete a 15-month strategic planning process resulting in a detailed statewide plan (Phase 1).
- Implement a multisystem statewide effort to improve outcomes for children, youth, and their families (Phase 2).
In October 2017, Illinois was awarded a Linking Systems of Care for Children and Youth grant from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice through their Vision 21: Linking Systems of Care Program. Illinois is one of only four states designated as a demonstration site for planning and implementing the multi-year grant. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) is the coordinating entity for this project in Illinois.
The Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services initiative Vision 21 expands the vision and impact of the crime victim assistance field. Initiated in 2013, Vision 21 was the first comprehensive examination into the crime victims field in 15 years. Vision 21 projects engage a broad spectrum of service providers, advocates, criminal justice professionals, allied practitioners, and policymakers to address crime victim issues through a lens broader than their everyday work.
