Annotation: This brief by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) highlights data reported by 23 grantees funded through the Specialized Services for Victims of Human Trafficking Program, as contained in the Trafficking Information Management System (TIMS) for July 2015-June 2016.
Abstract: This program recognizes that trafficking victims have diverse and distinct needs that may require specialized responses. The program’s purpose is to improve the quality and quantity of specialized services available to diverse victims. Among the specialized services provided are trauma-informed and culturally, linguistically, and developmentally appropriate services. The grantees are allowed to identify the specific population that will be served and/or the services that will be provided through the grant. The grantees specialized in services tailored to runaway and homeless youth and individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning. Eight grantees provided legal services, and three worked with clients who had been referred or identified through a court system. Seven grantees focused on identifying and assisting victims of sex trafficking. During the reporting period, the 23 grantees reported serving 1,821 clients, with 1,080 victims being new clients. Of the clients served, 78 percent were adults, and 22 percent were minors (under 18 years old). Percentages are also reported for victims served for various types of trafficking and by gender and transgender.
