Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $500,000)

Under the FY 2018 Integrated Services for Minor Victims of Trafficking program, all grantees are required to serve all minor victims (boys and girls under age 18) of all forms of human trafficking (sex and labor). The grantee will work with OVC Program Managers and Training and Technical Assistance Providers to ensure all victims are served. Covenant House Alaska (CHA) will build upon the work of an existing community trafficking collaboration called the Anchorage Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking (ADVHT) Project, which has been funded by the Administration on Children, Youth and Families. This project will engage core partners of the ADVHT team — the Alaska Native Justice Center, which provides culturally-relevant case management and advocacy, and Priceless, an anti-sex trafficking agency — to expand the trafficking collaboration. The project will provide comprehensive, coordinated services for victims of trafficking, with a particular focus on identifying, assessing, and serving minor victims of human trafficking. The project will engage a wide network of referral partners who will offer comprehensive services including case management, crisis intervention, education and employment services, family support and reunification, legal services, medical care, mental health and substance abuse treatment, counseling, shelter, housing, advocacy and a wide range of comprehensive services, all delivered in trauma-informed and victim-centered models of care.
