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. The Family Assistance Program in San Bernardino County has established a comprehensive anti-human trafficking program to identify and provide care for victims of all types of human trafficking. This project will allow the program to hire 2 full-time intensive case managers to coordinate a more responsive and comprehensive delivery of existing services. This will include identifying and providing 150 minor victims of human trafficking with one or more of the following services within the first year: shelter, transitional housing, basic needs amenities, transportation, crisis intervention, childcare, counseling, substance abuse treatment, life skills classes, education assistance, medical/dental care, legal advocacy, job placements services, and victims-based advocacy. The project will also open a new transitional housing facility for minors who turn age 18 while in the program. These activities will be concentrated in the High Desert region of Southern California, and the San Bernardino area (Redlands, Fontana, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, etc.). CA/NCF
