The Center’s goal is to build the Nation’s capacity to aid all victims of human trafficking. By increasing awareness of OVC’s human trafficking resources and programs, the Center hopes to assist victim service providers in delivering high-quality services to trafficking victims. Efforts to reach this goal are done through—
The Center conducts proactive outreach to victim service providers in states, territories, and federally recognized tribes with little to no current OVC human trafficking program funding. Through this outreach, the Center connects with local organizations and shares information about resources available to enhance and expand anti-trafficking work. See a map of states currently receiving proactive outreach.
All organizations and tribes offering human trafficking services in the United States are eligible for the Center’s support. The Center responds to requests for assistance with starting, sustaining, or growing human trafficking support services.
Webinars, Presentations, Workshops, and Conferences
The Center is committed to offering substantive content on human trafficking topics through a variety of channels. Center staff present at state and national conferences, offer local presentations and workshops, and produce highly-attended national webinars on a variety of human trafficking topics.
The Center offers opportunities for organizations and tribes to connect with peers delivering similar support to victims of human trafficking. The Center recognizes peer exchanges can be an invaluable source of insight for participants.
The Center understands the importance of developing a collaborative community response to human trafficking. Through proactive outreach, coaching services, and presentations, the Center assists organizations and tribes with connecting to local coalitions, councils, advisory boards, task forces, and other groups to strengthen their networks.
