Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $499,519)

The goal of this project is to enhance the prevention/early
intervention efforts of the YC Early Intervention Services
Program to specifically provide early intervention
programming against the trafficking of girls in Seattle/King
County while also serving survivors identified as a result of
project outreach and early intervention programming. This
goal will lead to positive outcomes for girls who are survivors
of trafficking or who are at risk of trafficking that include
healing, empowerment, and independence while also
preventing future instances of trafficking of girls in
Seattle/King County. Through this project, YouthCare will be
able to enhance its advocacy and case management services
for minor age girls who are survivors of human trafficking and
offer culturally responsive support. YouthCare will continue
to provide comprehensive services to survivors of labor and/or
sex trafficking who are 12-24 years old, identify as any
gender, are US citizens/foreign nationals/legal permanent
residents, and minors. This project specifically serves girls
ages 12-17 in Seattle/King County, Washington who have
been identified as at risk of or existing survivors of labor
and/or sex trafficking. Services are also targeted for girls who
are also at risk of or already experiencing housing instability
or homelessness.
