Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $549,684)

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 Salvation Army (TSA) Western Pennsylvania (WPA) Division will serve victims of human trafficking in the 28 counties served by TSA WPA. The TSA WPA is partnering with Friends of Farmworkers (FOF) and Pittsburgh Action Against Rape (PAAR) in order to replicate the successful comprehensive service coordination model that has been established since 2014 in Eastern PA for sex and labor trafficking victims. Through the leadership of TSA and partnerships with FOF and PAAR, TSA WPA will maximize community training, awareness and outreach, and victim identification and the coordination of services throughout the rural areas of the region.
