dc.description Report en_US
dc.description.abstract The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) within the U.S. Department of Justice is responsible for developing and administering the “Services for Trafficking Victims Discretionary Grant Program—Comprehensive Services Sites.” The program provides direct services, such as shelter, medical care, crisis counseling, legal assistance, and advocacy to assist victims between the time they are encountered by law enforcement until they are “certified” to receive other benefits from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services....In 2002, Caliber Associates, along with their subcontractor, the Urban Institute, began an evaluation of the OVC “Services for Trafficking Victims Discretionary Grant Program—Comprehensive Services Sites.” The research design for this National Institute of Justice (NIJ)–funded evaluation was divided into three phases that included qualitative and quantitative data collection activities: (1) Phase I was an evaluability assessment with the eight OVC-funded trafficking grantees to select the three sites to be included in the evaluation; (2) Phase II was the planning, implementation, and outcome evaluation in the three selected sites; and (3) Phase III included interviews with human trafficking victims who had been served by the OVC-funded collaboratives. This report presents the results from Phase III. To learn more about the victim services being provided with OVC funding, Urban Institute researchers conducted face-to-face interviews with survivors and with case managers and other key service providers in the three NIJ evaluation sites. The in-depth interviews document victims’ experiences using OVC-funded services, and their perceptions of the OVC-funded collaborative networks between service providers. They also provide a unique opportunity to listen directly to the voices of the victims for whom these services are designed, and to consider their input in future replications and refinements.
