Victim Legal Assistance Network (VLAN)

Victim Legal Assistance Network ("VLAN”) began as a partnership of Cook County service providers devoted to ensuring that victims (survivors) of crime obtain the services they need to recover from their victimization.

VLAN connects a diverse range of providers who work together to offer a broad spectrum of legal and non-legal support services that are essential to helping victims (survivors) recover and rebuild of their lives.
