Survivors First

We had the honor of profiling Survivors FIRST, the only program in the country that serves survivors of domestic violence who are also criminal defendants. We interviewed the program’s founders, legal navigators, and survivors themselves to capture their experiences and how the services of Survivors FIRST have transformed their lives. The profile serves as an example to other agencies and governments on how to adopt the model to serve individuals who are in greatest need of advocacy and support.
