What is a Network Referral Partner?
Referral Partners are organizations that have agreed – through a MOU with the NY Crime Victims Legal Network or through a contract with the NYS Office of Victim Services – to offer an additional mechanism through which a crime victim user of NY Crime Victims Legal Help can access legal services. These “warm referral mechanisms” are designed to make it easier for a crime victim to connect with the civil legal help they need.
Any civil legal organization can become a referral partner. Recipients of the June 2018 OVS Attorney Services award are expected to be referral partners.
