Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $925,000)

The goal of the FY 2019 Direct Services to Support Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this program supports direct services to victims of sex trafficking and labor trafficking, as well as for efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities over a three-year project period. This award made to Ruby's Place is funded under Sustaining Capacity to Provide Comprehensive Services which is designed to provide funding to experienced service providers to offer comprehensive services. Ruby’s Place provides in-house case management, mental health services, and housing programs for adults who are victims of labor trafficking and their families. Key partners provide services for unaccompanied minors and legal services for victims of human trafficking. The goals are to: provide services to identified victims of human trafficking; continue to work collaboratively with federal, state, and local law enforcement, services providers, and community- and faith-based organizations to ensure that trafficking victims are referred to appropriate services; conduct training and public awareness activities; and conduct data collection and action research activities. Ruby’s Place continues to enhance a system of referral and data tracking that coordinates multiple services across over a dozen agencies in the County of Alameda, as well as maintains a referral network across the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.CA/NCF
