Trafficking Victim Assistance Program

Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery. Often those most vulnerable are the highest at risk including undocumented immigrants, migrant workers or foreign born persons solicited to come to the U.S. to pursue education or work opportunities, yet find themselves in exploitive and dehumanizing acts of crime.


Bethany Christian Services seeks to offer support for survivors and their families through our Trafficking Victims Assistance Program (TVAP). For those enrolled in the program, TVAP offers client centered case management assistance to foreign born survivors of trafficking and their families. 

Services are available for those who were born outside of the U.S., are survivors of trafficking, and are not U.S. citizens or green cards holders. Survivor’s family members must arrive in the U.S. with T-2 through T-6 Visa statuses to be eligible for the program. 

Those who meet the criteria for the program can receive help with: 

  • Rent/Utilities
  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Pre-paid phones/phone cards
  • Employment
  • Medical, Dental, Vision
  • Counseling
  • Transportation
  • Translation/Interpretation
  • English language classes
  • Child Care
  • Family Reunification
  • Identification documents
  • Safety concerns
  • Enrollment in public benefits
