Training and Technical Assistance
Access to safe and affordable long-term housing is critical for survivors of human trafficking as they seek supportive services, justice, and, ultimately, heal. Affordable housing programs, including transitional and long-term, often have long waitlists and may restrict eligibility based on immigration status, criminal history, rental history, or current income. The housing landscape is truly complex and can be difficult to navigate.
The Freedom Network Training Institute (FNTI) provides advocates dynamic and up-to-date training and resources on housing options for survivors of human trafficking. The training, tools, and resources offer information and guidance for advocates in accessing appropriate emergency, transitional, and long-term housing options for survivors. FNTI’s Housing Training and Technical Assistance Project includes a wide array of expert consultants, including a Survivor Advisory Panel, supporting the creation of tools and delivery of training. You may access and share our materials by visiting the Resource Library. Feel free to contact us with any specific requests using our ‘inquiry’ link below.
