Types of Residential Facilities for Victims of Trafficking Emergency Shelter: is usually the first destination for victims of trafficking, following a rescue, police referral, or escape, and typically provide for stays of a few nights to a month. They emphasize the immediate provision of medical and physical security for the victims. Transit Center: is similar to emergency centers but are distinguished by their strategic location at significant trafficking and migration border crossings. They provide assistance to victims who are being trafficked or who are coming back into the country after being trafficked. An effective transit center needs strong coordination between service providers and local law enforcement.

Types of Residential Facilities for Victims of Trafficking Short-Term Shelter is commonly provide assistance to victims of trafficking from one week to three months, either in their country of origin or destination. Victims trafficked across national borders may be referred to these shelters, sometimes by an emergency shelter in the destination country or by police, or they may seek out shelters themselves. Long-Term Shelter prepares victims for reintegration into society, whether within their families or in new communities. The length of stay in longterm shelters varies; most provide support and assistance for six months or more. Transition homes and reintegration centers are two common types of long-term shelters. Transition homes offer residents more freedom of movement. Reintegration centers provide safety and long-term support in a structured, formal program.
