HUD Listening Session: Connecting Human Trafficking Survivors to Housing Programs
May 21, 2019 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
During HUD’s recent listening session with survivors of human trafficking, we heard about the disconnect between the anti-trafficking and homeless and housing service fields. The unique, tailored services of anti-trafficking providers can play a significant role in the survivor’s journey to self-sufficiency; but without safe and adequate housing options, that growth is hindered.
Freedom Network USA, the National Survivor Network, and HUD’s Office of Special Needs Programs (SNAPS) will hold a listening session on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 to hear directly from anti-trafficking service providers about the barriers they face in connecting survivors to housing, obstacles to access, and gaps in existing resources.
Space is limited; please register by May 20, 2019. Participants can submit questions through the registration link or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This listening session is geared towards anti-trafficking service providers, however, follow up calls may be geared towards homeless and housing service providers.
