Training and Technical Assistance
Access to safe and affordable long-term housing is critical for survivors of human trafficking. 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 training and resources on housing options for survivors of human trafficking. This includes guidance for advocates in accessing appropriate emergency, transitional, or 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, who supports the creation and delivery of content.
