The purpose of this project was to write a grant to expand Orangewood Foundation’s The Lighthouse program to provide its tailored services to more individuals, aged 18-22 years, who are survivors of domestic human trafficking and would benefit from the program. Domestic human trafficking is a social problem that affects hundreds of thousands of youths across the United States; however, there is a disproportionate number of long-term residential programs available for transitional aged youth to regain stability and create a new life with a foundation of safe employment and/or education. By expanding The Lighthouse program, which has experienced positive success working with this population, more persons who have experienced human trafficking will successfully start a new life away from “the life.” A literature review was conducted that examined the history of how human trafficking has been addressed, the risk and protective factors for this population, best practices, and the gap in services. It was not required that the grant be submitted as a part of this thesis project’s completion.
