Casa de Esperanza- National Latin@ Network conducted a research with the aim to gain a better understanding of current services for survivors of trafficking provided by domestic/sexual violence organizations across the country. The study included a web-based survey of domestic/sexual violence organizations and in depth case studies of five organizations that serve trafficking survivors. We invite you to join this conversation where we will share the findings and lessons of our research.
By the end of this webinar, participants will understand:
- Demographic profile of human trafficking survivors being served by the organizations who responded to the survey.
- Services of human trafficking that are most often provided by DV/SV organizations.
- Best practices utilized by providers to serve human trafficking survivors.
- Recommendations for the field about serving human trafficking survivors in DV/SV organizations.
