Defining and Documenting Core Services

Register now at:

Core services are just what they sound like- the services essential to victims and survivors, and the ones required for KCSDV accreditation. Despite providing these services on a daily basis, they can be challenging to define and to distinguish between when preparing a self-study. In Defining and Documenting Core Services, we will unpack the core services and give recommendations for effective documentation.
