One of NOVA HTI's driving passions is to provide trafficking victims with the help they need not only to survive, but thrive.
NOVA - HTI works directly with law enforcement to assess and coordinate all aspects of care for human trafficking survivors and provide the healthy support structure needed for them to thrive.
Mentors befriend and stand-with trafficking survivors, helping them through their challenges and celebrating the triumphs.
Volunteer Floaters provide a variety of services for clients. For example, a Volunteer Floater may be asked to drive clients to appointments, gather/deliver supplies, teach life skills, or assist with emails or phone calls.
Crisis Response Team members are those called at any time - day or night - to recovery scenes and work with law enforcement to provide the immediate needs of victims.
Case Management Team members partner with law enforcement as they assess the individual needs of the client, write an individualized plan of care with the client, and refer them to the appropriate treatment facilities and service providers.
Family Life Transition is a program where families open their homes to provide housing to stable survivors who are ready for that transition. Training, backgrounds screenings, references, and interviews are required.
NOVA-HTI adheres to the Code of Ethics endorsed by the National Association of Social Workers, which can be viewed here.
