The primary goal of the FY 2018 Comprehensive Services for All Forms of Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. The Program provides funding to victim service organizations with a demonstrated history of providing comprehensive services for victims of human trafficking. Funding also supports efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities.
With this award, The Anti-Trafficking Program (ATP) of Safe Horizon, Inc., will provide comprehensive services at the programs office in Kings County (Brooklyn) in New York City (NYC). ATP will serve clients who are victims of all forms of trafficking within the five NYC boroughs. The project goal is to enable victims to reach independence and self-sufficiency. The annual objectives are to: 1) enhance comprehensive services for at least 200 human trafficking victims; 2) increase inter-agency collaboration and the coordinated communitywide response to victims; 3) deepen evidence-informed service practices for trafficking survivors; and 4) improve data collection, action research, and evaluation capacity.
