HHS and HUD would like to thank you for registering for the National Listening Session on Human Trafficking and Housing/Services. We have had 1000 participants register, so in order to ensure we have a rich conversation we would will be capping the call to the first 500 participants that call in. We recommend that if you are calling from the same organization you call in using one phone line. We also value the input of all those who registered. If you were not able to enter the call due to the 500 person cap you will be sent a link after the call where you can enter your name and email in order to save your contact information and invite you to a second national listening call. The second call will ask identical questions and will be only for those that were not able to get on the first call. Thank you for your interest,

Event description

Description

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will host a national joint listening session to address the intersection of trafficking and the need for housing and social services for survivors. In response to the Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking, HHS and HUD have been working to coordinate efforts to address the needs of human trafficking survivors, recognizing that housing and supportive services are critical in serving survivors.

The listening session will continue HHS and HUD’s efforts by bringing together social service and housing providers serving adult survivors of human trafficking in order to:

    • Understand the challenges facing housing and social service providers in meeting the needs of adult (18+) survivors of human trafficking and those at risk of trafficking for safe and appropriate housing and support services;

    • Recognize best practices in housing and support services for trafficking survivors; and

    • Help identify potential changes in policy, technical assistance, outreach, or other areas to better assist housing and social service providers effectively meet the needs of this population.

The three main questions HHS and HUD will be discussing are:

    1. What are the major challenges you face in helping survivors access housing and supportive services in your community?

    2. Are you involved in or aware of any promising practices on the ground in this area?

    3. What are the top 3 things you believe HUD and HHS could do to help the work you are doing on the ground?
