by Loretz, Natalie, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 79; 1466284
Abstract (Summary)

Specific targeted groups compromised of law enforcement, social services, and health care providers are often the first to identify a human trafficking victim, yet their skills need improvement due to the high number of victims trafficked to the United States. The purpose of this project was to develop a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant for targeted professionals to receive education on identification of trafficking victims and beneficial strategies to improving supports for this population. The literature addresses the issue internationally, in the United States, and California. The funding source identified was the Administration of Children and Families. The program components are victim identification protocols, developing skills to indicate a potential trafficking situation, and acquire knowledge of outreach services. Actual submission and/or funding for this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
