As the network of VS2000 members develops a structure for sustaining its projects and collaborations beyond the 5-year federal funding period, training and education will continue to be important. As the victim services field matures and develops as a profession, ongoing training will be necessary to develop the skills needed to address the growing challenges for victim service providers and allied professionals. Within the Denver VS2000 collaborative efforts, training continues to build trust among agencies and provide common terms of understanding, language, and approach. Providing accessible, relevant training for those who work with crime victims is an ongoing endeavor, and the curricula, technology, and implementation plans developed by VS2000 and others are only the beginning of a training initiative that will continue to enhance the ability of service providers and allied professionals to meet the needs of crime victims.
