Join a live webinar discussion on “Addressing the Housing Need: Sustaining critical services for victims of human trafficking during a remote environment” on Wednesday, February 24 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. eastern.
Finding adequate and appropriate emergency, transitional, and long-term housing for victims of human trafficking is often the biggest service-related challenge support organizations face. Three national experts will offer insight and answer participant questions during this hour-long session. The discussion will include information on potential housing partners and developing MOUs, understanding a rights-based approach focused on survivor short- and long-term needs, available federal funding, and how to build a housing program.
The live question and answer session will be moderated by Kristin Weschler, a victim justice program specialist within the Office for Victims of Crime, U.S. Department of Justice.
