Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a residential program, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to fund a program that includes housing, counseling, and job shadowing for victims of human trafficking who have also been sexually exploited. A literature review was conducted to learn about the background of the problem and to identify the needs of this population.

Victims of human trafficking have little resources available to them, especially housing. This program seeks to provide comprehensive services to victims of human trafficking in San Diego County. The potential funding source was AAUW (formerly known as the American Association of University Women), which has supported similar programs to help victims of human trafficking.

The goal of the project is to empower victims of human trafficking, who have been sexually exploited to become self sufficient. This will be achieved by providing (1) housing, (2) counseling, and (3) job shadowing for a period of 2 years.
