Why does FASTEN recommend this resource?

This booklet is less of an overview and more of a guide for how to deal with specific situations and answer specific questions.  The guide is very thorough and includes the latest statistics and facts from all departments of the government. The sections on victim assistance; the help that different departments of the government can provide; immigration; and additional resources are very practical.
