Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $509,005)

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 specialized services to victims of sex 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.

Community Medical Centers, Inc. will address gaps in connecting and helping trafficking victims access services in San Joaquin County, CA with a service area that is 30 percent rural. This project will be the first OVC-funded provider in the service area. Community Medical Centers will provide coordination of services for victims of human trafficking who seek help through or are referred by the Family Justice Center. The project will provide medical, mental health, and substance abuse services for survivors, services which are not currently available to victims who come into the family justice center. The project is designed to address complex physical and emotional needs of victims and will fund a care coordinator position to work with the Family Justice Center on identifying victims for services.
