Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $354,785)

The project will present a profile of the survivors assisted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement Anti-Trafficking Services Programs and will evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to stabilize, rehabilitate, and integrate them into the wider society. The objective of the project is to better our understanding of the characteristics of trafficking victims and the efficacy of different intervention strategies in stabilizing their well-being. The survivor profile will be generated by a systematic and careful use of agency data housed at the USCCB. The evaluation of interventions will be twofold: 1) a quantitative history analysis of the USCCB individual case tracking data, and 2) a qualitative assessment of the intervention processes, measures, and survivor outcomes

The project will utilize several data sources: 1) A longitudinal, relational database of 2,233 survivor cases as reported electronically by service providers; 2) Intake assessment and case notes; 3) Group discussions and/or ethnographic interviews with service providers to gain an in-depth understanding of the dynamics involved in protecting survivors from repeat victimization and facilitating their reintegration into the mainstream society; and 4) Ethnographic interviews and case files review of selected adult survivors to gain the insiders understanding of the challenges and prospects for long-term reintegration into the U.S. society.
