Partners Against Trafficking in Humans (PATH)





What is PATH?

PATH is a community-wide, outcomes-based coordinated, transparent, and data-driven response to human trafficking. The Project addresses the barriers and gaps in direct service coordination for human trafficking victims. It functions to improve service delivery, address barriers and gaps in human trafficking-related services and in coordination for human trafficking victims (track what is and what is not working), document de-identified data, and identify the continuum of care. PATH provides a model for victims (as defined by policy or law) to become survivors (defined because they survived, are no longer involved, and are engaged in emotional and psychological healing), and survivors to become thrivers (economic empowerment).

Visual Representation of Community-Wide Coordination



 PATH Model: 10 PATHs and Services

A victim, survivor, or thriver (client) will be referred to a PATH Care Coordinator. The PATH Care Coordinator will conduct an initial assessment with the client to identify their general needs. Depending on what those general needs are, the PATH Care Coordinator will then conduct further assessments. After that, the PATH Care Coordinator will link clients with the determined services needed. All of this work is documented on de-identified paperwork to analyze the movement of the client in their services.
