REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT AND SUPPORT SERVICES
TRAFFICKED PERSONS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
In 2003, the Y established the Trafficked Persons Assistance Program to identify and assist victims of human trafficking, regardless of their legal status. The program provides direct client services and raises awareness in the community through education and outreach. Intensive case management services are available to both foreign national and U.S. national victims of human trafficking.
POST RELEASE SERVICES
The Y provides Post-Release Services (PRS) to children released from the Office of Resettlement (ORR) care facilities. The PRS program provides our families with supportive services during the child’s transition into the community and helps them identify resources and navigate the various systems in the U.S. Our goal is to work collaboratively with families to ensure that the child has a positive integration into their new home and community.
