U.S. Department of Justice Funds Day One Legal Services

Day One has been awarded a three-year grant by the United States Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women Legal Assistance for Victims program to provide legal services to youth survivors of dating abuse and domestic violence.  Funds from the Department of Justice will enable Day One to provide holistic legal services to assist victims of intimate partner violence, stalking and sexual assault. Day One will be partnering with the New York Alliance Against Sexual Assault and the New York Legal Assistance Group to deliver these services to New York City youth.

The Legal Assistance for Victims Grant Program strengthens civil and criminal legal assistance programs for adult and youth victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking who are seeking relief in legal matters relating to or arising out of that abuse or violence. Day One was a previous grantee in 2011.
