This brief is the second of seven toolkit resources resulting from the Urban Institute’s formative evaluation of the VictimConnect Resource Center, a nationwide victims’ helpline operated by the National Center for Victims of Crime. The evaluation was conducted from 2019 to 2020 with funding from the National Institute of Justice. In this brief, we explain the value of developing logic models in general and why doing so was useful for evaluating VictimConnect. We then explain how Urban collaborated with the National Center for Victims of Crime to refine the VictimConnect logic model.
