New Resource Helps Connect Trafficking Survivors with Employment Opportunities

Finding stable employment is critical to the long-term well-being of human trafficking survivors. But, crime victim services and workforce development programs are often siloed. Without partnerships, both have limited capacity to meet the complex needs of survivors.

The recently released Partnerships and Pathways to Economic Opportunity for Survivors of Trafficking: A Guide offers direction on how victim service providers and workforce development programs can collaborate and form partnerships to enhance survivors’ access to quality employment opportunities.

The guide provides relevant examples, cases, and resources to promote success, and can be used to help your organization create meaningful partnerships that improve employment opportunities and economic security for trafficking survivors.

This guide was created by Futures Without Violence with funding from OVC through the Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Trafficking project.
