Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $774,999)
The primary goal of the FY 2018 Comprehensive Services for All Forms of Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. The Program provides funding to victim service organizations with a demonstrated history of providing comprehensive services for victims of human trafficking. Funding also supports efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities.
With this award, Fresno County Economic Opportunities Commission's goals of the project are to 1) enhance the quality and quantity of comprehensive services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act; 2) increase capacity for community response to human trafficking victims through the development of inter-agency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities; and 3) provide high-quality and targeted services that address individualized needs. The project will achieve these goals by providing trauma-informed direct services, and collaborating with partner organizations to meet the comprehensive needs of trafficking victims. The project will include subgrants with Centro La Familia Advocacy Services, Inc., and Fresno Pacific University, respectively, to provide legal services and perform action research.
