HHS and HUD National Listening Session on Housing and Services for Human Trafficking Survivors
February 24, 2016 | 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM EST
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will host a national joint listening session to address the intersection of trafficking and the need for housing and social services for survivors. In response to the Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking, HHS and HUD have been working to coordinate efforts to address the needs of human trafficking survivors, recognizing that housing and supportive services are critical in serving survivors.
The three main questions HHS and HUD will be discussing are:
- What are the major challenges you face in helping survivors access housing and supportive services in your community?
- Are you involved in or aware of any promising practices on the ground in this area?
- What are the top 3 things you believe HUD and HHS could do to help the work you are doing on the ground?
