The goal of the FY 2019 Direct Services to Support Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this program supports direct services to victims of sex trafficking and labor trafficking, as well as for efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities over a three-year project period.
The Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children (ACCVC) and UnBound Waco founded the Heart of Texas Human Trafficking Task Force (HOTHTTF) to combat human trafficking and provide a comprehensive array of services to trafficking victims in the Heart of Texas region. ACCVC and UnBound Waco collaborate to provide services to all victims of human trafficking within the service areas of the Heart of Texas region, which includes the counties of Bosque, Hill Falls, Freestone, Limestone, and McLennan.
