Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $103,662)
There is a lack of availability of sex trafficking recovery programs in the U.S. and only onePathfinder Centerthat provides culturally responsive services specific to Native American women victims of sex trafficking. This proposal seeks to demonstrate a Native-specific sex trafficking delivery model and create a blueprint to replicate the program throughout other parts of Indian country. ICF will partner with the Pathfinder Center to conduct an 18-month formative and preliminary outcome evaluation of Pathfinders services for Native American victims of sex trafficking using a community-based participatory research approach that is culturally responsive and trauma- informed. The study will integrate survivors voices and key stakeholders throughout all project activities, which includes a systematic literature review, key informant interviews, and staff and client surveys. The proposed research concludes with a final report, in the form of a proposed outcome evaluation of the Pathfinder, and a special report detailing the Pathfinder-ICF partnership.
