3 Help for the Individual on a National Scale Survivors receive much needed services and funding Builds capacity of agencies throughout the U.S. to provide trafficking case management Agencies can access national point of contact for case consultation, training and technical assistance Survivors receive continued service provision if they move from one location to another Data collected on client demographics and service needs

4 USCCB Comprehensive Case Management Model GOAL: To provide support and assistance to survivors of human trafficking, empowering them to reach long-term self- sufficiency. Role of Trafficking Case Manager Identify needs and goals, create service plan Coordinate service provision Liaise with law enforcement and attorneys Benefits: Survivor has single point of contact for services to help them navigate through many levels of bureaucracy and serve as a safety net until the survivor is more comfortable Case manager serves a critical role in a survivors healing process through establishing a trusting relationship

6 Client Eligibility Survivors of Trafficking o Meet the federal definition of a victim of a severe form of trafficking o Are removed from the trafficking situation o Require trafficking case management o Are not a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident o Either pre-certified and certified victims Family derivatives with a T visa (T-2, T-3, T-4, and T-5)

7 Financial Structure and Service Periods

8 Role of USCCB Recruitment of and subcontract with service providers Fiduciary agent Training (monthly, specialty, one-on-one) Technical assistance and case consultation Access to legal and mental health technical assistance providers Resources (monthly bulletin, Web site, Program Operations Manual) National data collection Service provision monitoring Program development consultation

9 Evolution of the Per Capita Program Increase in number and types of subcontractors Increase in number of monthly webinar trainings Specialty trainings based on subcontractor feedback and trends Resource development Program Operations Manual compilation of best practices On-line database Subcontractors can access via internet in real time Tracks client budget and reporting deadlines Annual evaluation survey elicits more targeted feedback

10 USCCB Assistance During Referral Process Connects all parties involved with the case. Offers case consultation and guidance to assist subcontractor in managing the case. Recommends contacting law enforcement and an immigration attorney. Refers subcontractor to its mental health technical assistance provider, Project REACH. Refers sub and/or immigration attorney to legal technical assistance provider (CLINIC). Provides training to subcontractor on the enrollment process into the per capita program. Facilitates referrals to subcontractors in other states.

11 Benefits to Client & Subcontractor Budget for direct client and administrative expenses Needs met holistically, not piecemeal USCCB available for consultation Survivors connected to services anywhere in the U.S. Coordination and reimbursement during relocation process Mental health and legal technical assistance providers available at no-cost to subcontractors System of oversight to ensure survivors receive quality services

12 Criteria for Applying to be a Subcontractor On-site capacity for comprehensive case management and after-hour emergency Qualified case management staff History of working with populations with similar needs or experiences as trafficking survivors Relationships with community partners Active DUNS and EIN A-133 audit report/independently audited financial statements

13 Considerations for Potential Subcontractors Non-competitive contract One year renewable contract Can specify caseload capacity (sex trafficking, labor trafficking, male, female, adult, children, language) Training and support provided Client referrals through various sources (law enforcement, USCCB, or identified through community outreach) Caseload unpredictable, variable

14 HHS-USCCB Per Capita Services Program American Samoa Hawaii Updated October 2009 Guam Northern Mariana Islands

15 USCCB Subcontractors USCCB Subcontractors Primary Affiliation of Program Within Agency that Serves Trafficking Survivors Refugee Resettlement 41% Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault 18% Community based (general social services) 14% Victim Services (human trafficking, crime victims) 10% Immigrant Advocacy/Ethnic Group 10% Other (mental health, survivors of torture program, farm worker program) 7%

16 Indicators of Effectiveness for Subcontractors Mission-driven Support from agency leadership Dedicated case managers experienced in serving vulnerable populations Established case management system Cross-cultural competency, language capacity Multiple services offered in-house Excellent working relationships with community partners, established referral mechanisms Fiscally sound with adequate cash flow

17 Leveraging the Program Empower survivors Maximize community resources (food, clothing, personal items, housing, translation) Actively participate in local anti-trafficking task force or coalition, or start one Have staffing mechanisms for fluctuating caseload Form effective partnerships with federal and local law enforcement and immigration attorney(s) Develop protocols for tips, screening, media, confidentiality, safety Make use of ongoing USCCB Program training, technical assistance and resources Conduct training on victim identification both in-house and with community partners

18 Common Training Needs for New Subcontractors Safety planning Immigration options and issues (Continued Presence, T visa) Case manager and immigration attorney roles Cross-cultural considerations Psychology of victimization/trauma Working with federal law enforcement Confidentiality issues Establishing protocols

19 Training and Technical Assistance Data From April 2006 – November 2009, USCCB has provided: Training to 2,963 persons Technical Assistance to 1,646 persons Recipients: Subcontractors, other professionals working on human trafficking, law enforcement, other service providers, national crime victim networks.

20 Clients Served in HHS-USCCB Program Nationwide From April 2006-December 2009: 1,499 survivors of trafficking 303 family derivatives Of the survivors enrolled: 57% Female/43% Male 72% Labor 20% Sex 8% Both 3% Child Victims

21 Client Data 88 countries of origin Top five countries of origin Thailand Mexico Philippines India Guatemala Areas with highest caseloads Florida California Washington, DC metro area New York

22 Case Trends Survivors are varied in age, race, class, gender, religion and culture with multiple, varied needs Increasing percentage of large labor cases Male labor trafficking survivors frequently relocating Small percentage of child trafficking survivors identified Labor trafficking was found in a wide range of industries including: Some survivors were smuggled into the U.S.; many came through the H2-B guest worker program Migrant farm workHotels, casinos Domestic servitudeSweatshops and factories ConstructionSalons ShipbuildingRestaurants

23 Top Client Expenses (4/07-12/09) Lodging Food Clothing Personal Care Transportation Utilities Translation/Interpretation Pre-paid phone cards

24 Systemic Issues Requiring Training and Advocacy Immigration attorneys delaying filing of T visa until after criminal prosecution In some regions, law enforcement not endorsing T visa without an active investigation Lack of law enforcement coordination with service providers during and after raids Delays in receipt of Continued Presence (CP) and Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Barriers to identification of child trafficking survivors Lack of education on assisting child trafficking survivors

25 Systemic Issues Requiring Resource Development Lack of immediate shelter for male labor trafficking survivors Vulnerability of survivors being re-trafficked in same industry due to limited employability Affordable long-term housing for survivors Difficulty in finding employment for certified survivors of trafficking within four month service period

26 Communities Benefit Funding for clients and service providers Local sub-contractor(s) ready to respond to unique needs of trafficking survivors Community response to trafficking developed Partnership with law enforcement facilitates future victim identification and prosecution of traffickers Mental health providers and legal service providers partnering with subcontractor have access to technical assistance Data on trafficking survivors served available for advocacy and funding purposes

27 Looking Forward Continually recruit new potential subcontractors to increase service capacity in all regions. Keep program up to date on local developments affecting service provision. Adapt the program to address emerging needs.
