Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $750,000)

Tharros Place will develop a 12-bed rapid rehousing facility for minor female victims of human trafficking, ages 11-17, in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia. The facility will meet both emergency/rapid and long-term housing needs, with the ability to place young victims in crisis while also meeting long-term needs to transition to life beyond trafficking. The four primary objectives for Tharros Place are to (1) provide safe and secure housing; (2) leverage community resources; (3) equip residents for independence; and (4) engage and educate the community about human trafficking, all through a lens of trauma and racial equity. Tharros Place will partner with HOPE Court, a Chatham County Juvenile Treatment Court that identifies minor victims of human trafficking within the juvenile justice system and provides restorative practices.

Date Created: September 27, 2022
