SOAR for Communities

Training Results

able to evaluate community’s response to trafficking and identify strengths and areas for improvement
able to develop an action plan to expand response to trafficking in their community 
Want to bring community stakeholders together to prevent and respond to human trafficking?

Through this phased initiative, community members will build a proactive, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary network to identify and respond to trafficking. SOAR achieves this by using a public health approach that complements the traditional criminal justice approach.

Phase 1: Assesing Existing Response

Prior to the training, our team will conduct a series of key informant interviews to better understand your comunity's unique circumstances. The NHTTAC team will use this information to tailor the interactive, 1.5 to 2-day training and strategic planning for your community.

Phase 2: Community Wide Training

During the interactive training, diverse community stakeholders will identify your community's risk and protective factors, assess stakeholder resources to address trafficking within the community, and determine next steps for strengthening your community's multidisciplinary response to trafficking.

Phase 3: Follow-On Coaching

After the training, a NHTTAC consultant will support you in implementing your action plan. They can help facilitate stakeholder calls virtually, identify resources that can complement your action plan, peer review documentation and protocols, and much more.

From start to finish, we partner with your community for 6–12 months to support and transform your community response to trafficking.

This program is currently offered as a pilot program in English and Spanish. Email NHTTAC or call our Customer Support Center at 844-648-8822 for more information.
