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, the Preble Street Anti-Trafficking Services (PSATS) PSATS will assist human trafficking victims with assessments, assistance with basic needs, access to public benefits, and Intensive Case Management. Individual service and safety plans will include referrals and connections to services for: shelter and housing; medical and dental care; mental health and substance abuse treatment; translator services; civil, criminal, and immigration referrals; education and employment training; life skills; transportation; and an array of legal services. PSATS will enhance and broaden its Anti-Trafficking Services model of providing comprehensive services for all trafficking victims in Cumberland and York Counties. PSATS will focus on increasing the identification of labor trafficking, minors, and male victims by building public awareness of the human cost of trafficking, and mobilizing partners and community-based programs to improve identification and referrals to PSAT.
