Training and Technical Assistance to Services for Trafficking Victims Grantees

Safe Horizon, one of the Nation's largest victim assistance and advocacy agencies, facilitated eight training sessions and completed five site visits to trafficking grantees during 2003. It also consulted on 6 cases and responded to more than 30 technical assistance requests in addition to facilitating monthly conference calls with the trafficking grantees and producing a guide on safety protocols for victim service providers.

Safe Horizon operates 75 service programs throughout New York City's five boroughs and serves certified victims of trafficking through funding from the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the Department of Health and Human Services. The agency partners with other nongovernmental organizations, local and federal law enforcement, and community leaders on the New York City Community Response to Trafficking Project.
