Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $500,000)

Under the FY 2018 Integrated Services for Minor Victims of Trafficking program, all grantees are required to serve all minor victims (boys and girls under age 18) of all forms of human trafficking (sex and labor). The grantee will work with OVC Program Managers and Training and Technical Assistance Providers to ensure all victims are served. Wichita Children’s Home (WCH) has 130 years of providing comprehensive services to at-risk youth. The goals of the Kansas Alliance to End Human Trafficking project are to: 1) Understand the full scope of the issue of human trafficking in rural Kansas; 2) Educate the public and key stakeholders in urban and rural areas about indicators of trafficking and resources available locally and statewide; and 3) enhance existing and add new high-quality services for minor HT victims across Kansas. As a result, this project will: 1) strengthen gaps in service delivery and resource coordination for HT victims accessing WCH programs and new victims identified in rural Kansas; 2) increase awareness and understanding of HT among rural communities; and 3) build strong referral partnerships to build a stronger statewide continuum of care for minor victims. Key project activities will take place in Wichita/Sedgwick County, the location of the main office of Wichita Children’s Home. CA/NCF
