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 ARC Community Services, Inc., and is funded under Sustaining Capacity to Provide Comprehensive Services which is designed to provide funding to experienced service providers to offer comprehensive services. ARC Community Services, Inc., covers Dane County and the adjoining Iowa, Columbia, Sauk, Green, Rock, and Jefferson Counties. This project will facilitate the identification of and assistance to all victims of human trafficking in achieving goals such as increasing independence and self-sufficiency, increasing feelings of safety and well-being, and enhancing the quality and quantity of services available to victims. The project will also increase capacity in communities in the Federal Western District of Wisconsin to respond to human trafficking through the development of interagency partnerships and professional training. Project objectives include 1) providing comprehensive case management services; 2) enhancing interagency collaboration and the coordinated community response; and 3) providing training, technical assistance and public awareness activities to law enforcement, local services providers, and community- and faith-based organizations.
