Increase Identification of Victims
The Central Texas Coalition Against Human Trafficking hopes to facilitate more frequent identification of trafficking victims by educating the central Texas community of law enforcement, social service providers, faith-based groups, medical and emergency personnel and any persons who may come across victims of trafficking. Through trainings, presentations and an annual conference we will enable the community to recognize and appropriately respond to victims of human trafficking.
Provide Quality Continuum of Services
The CTCAHT will work through continuous multidisciplinary collaboration to coordinate services and benefits to victims of severe forms of human trafficking. Evaluation (currently through the UT School of Social Work/Center for Social Work Research) will guide the coalition in enhancing its services.
Promote Program Growth & Sustainability
The CTCAHT will continue to seek additional coalition members from the Austin community to join and augment the range of expertise the coalition has offered to victims. Monthly meetings will allow for consistent work in developing the program.
