The five Roman Catholic Dioceses of New Jersey are preparing to join a growing movement in the United States by creating a compensation program for those abused by clergy as children.
What is the New Jersey IVCP?
The New Jersey Independent Victims Compensation Program seeks to pay reparations for victims abused on their watch.
Many children across the country have been sexually abused by members of the Catholic Church. After much pressure from the media and the public, many dioceses have begun to set up programs offering monetary compensation to victims.
It has been known for years that the Catholic Church has horribly mishandled this situation. Rather than address the plague of sexual assault occurring on their watch, the Church attempted to cover up the scandal for decades by moving priests to new districts. Because of this, thousands of priests have gotten away with terrible crimes and tens of thousands of victims have to live with the consequences.
Across the country, dozens of districts are attempting to come clean and repay those who have suffered.
The New Jersey IVCP (Independent Victims Compensation Program) establishes a fund to compensate victims for the trauma they have suffered.
If you were abused as a child by a member of the Roman Catholic Diocese of New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation.
