Partners Against Trafficking in Humans: The Vision for the PATH Model

Fanell Williams, Celia Williamson, Chris Demko, Marchon Noon, Jane Meyer & Pat Stephens | September 21 | 2:45-3:45 PM | Room 3010A

The PATH (Partners Against Trafficking in Humans) Project is a community-wide, coordinated, transparent, and data-driven response to serve victims of human trafficking. The PATH Project was developed using a combination of the Office for Victims of Crime Comprehensive Services Model, the Pathways Model (a successful model used to increase the healthy births of high-risk babies), and elements of social work practice. The goal is to provide intensive and comprehensive services that move victims to survivors and survivors to thrivers. The vision is for the PATH Model to become an evidence-based model to be shared with other communities. Attendees will learn the components of the model and the experience of practitioners that are implementing the model.

Presentation Objectives:

·         Describe the components of the PATH Project and the PATH Model

·         Explain the continuum of care (including conceptual definitions of a victim, survivor, and thriver)

·         Present the basic findings from PATH Model data analysis
