Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goal 1: HOUSING

Goal 2: VICTIM SERVICES

Goal 3: TRAININGS, OUTREACH & PUBLIC AWARENESS

Goal 4: PROGRAM EVALUATION

Goal 1: HOUSING
BSCC will continue to provide emergency and transitional housing to clients. In addition to providing case management and assistance with applying for housing, which may include government assistance for eligible survivors of crime.

Goal 2: VICTIM SERVICES
1. In victim services, BSCC’s case managers will continue to be trained in new policies and implementing approaches that enhance our client-centered best practices in service provision and identifying solutions for barriers caused by COVID-19.

2. BSCC will continue to refine our nutritional program and provide opportunities to learn how to create healthy meals, and positive body image.

3. BSCC and case managers are currently developing new pamphlets addressing our maternal training, and self-care. Both pamphlets will be finalized within 2021 and included in our welcome packets for new clients.

4. BSCC is developing protocols for first referring the client to drug addiction programs for detox assistance. Upcoming topics for BSCC in-service trainings in 2021 will include addressing self-care, identifying clients under the influence of medications or illicit street drugs, and emergency protocols when a client is suspected to have ingested Fentanyl.

5. BSCC will continue to collaborate with partners to provide comprehensive case management under our Victim-Survivor-Thriver model.

Goal 3: TRAININGS, OUTREACH & PUBLIC AWARENESS

BSCC’s Executive Director, Marisa Ugarte, will be providing trainings throughout the year addressing Human Trafficking and Labor Trafficking.

Outreach A Bunch of Guys (ABOG): ABOG is a volunteer-driven initiative facilitated under BSCC’s coordination to address demand. Securing volunteers and logistical challenges impeded outreach during the pandemic shut-downs. BSCC is reviewing feasibility of initiating ABOG events in late-2021.

Mexican Consulate Labor Trafficking: In a previous report, we shared that BSCC collaborated with our new partner to provide a public awareness training webinar. Upcoming collaborations will include BSCC’s monthly Unity meetings.

Public Awareness

BSCC’s Executive Director is committed to inclusive outreach and community awareness on human trafficking emphasizing labor exploitation. Among our objectives for 2021, BSCC will be engaging local and national organizations addressing intersectional risk for exploitation and trafficking with community stakeholders that have been historically under-recognized and marginalized within San Diego County.


Goal 4: PROGRAM EVALUATION
BSCC with collaboration with IVAT will develop and implement a process to evaluate programs.

Goal 1: HOUSING
BSCC will continue to provide emergency and transitional housing to clients. In addition to providing case management and assistance with applying for housing, which may include government assistance for eligible survivors of crime.

Goal 2: VICTIM SERVICES
BSCC is exited to initiate new partnerships with Border Patrol (BP), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Legal Aid Society and Anvil of Hope. This multilayer cooperation OVC Human Trafficking Programs: Narrative 24 encompasses government agencies, as well as other nonprofit organizations that are interested in the well-being of the San Diego community at large. BSCC is especially proud for being among the selected nonprofits that will receive tailored training from a government entity. Our selection for this opportunity validates the significant role that BSCC plays in the fight against Human Trafficking.

In collaboration with the Human Trafficking Taskforce, BSCC and collaborative partners will be exploring attaining Narcan or Naloxone training for all case managers, and creating a standardized procedures and protocols for use.

Goal 3: TRAININGS, OUTREACH & PUBLIC AWARENESS
BSCC is pursuing opportunities to engage labor unions to provide trainings on identifying the signs of human trafficking, with emphasis on labor exploitation. BSCC is currently developing the curriculum and will co-present with the San Diego District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division. We estimate our curriculum will be finalized and available to present by September 2021. BSCC, and collaborator ERC, are currently developing training curriculum intended for the general public to learn the signs of labor exploitation and trafficking, and how to report suspicious or illicit activity by employers.

Goal 4: PROGRAM EVALUATION
Brav Consulting will advise BSCC and IVAT with development and implementation of program evaluation. IVAT has developed the methodology for the program evaluation and has completed their feasibility study with two English-speaking clients. All participants can opt-in or out of the program evaluation at time of signing their informed consent form. All information will be de-identified and information stored within APA ethical best practices.

Public Awareness
Reach Coalition: BSCC and other partners worked with Bottom Line Marketing Company to develop a public awareness campaign. Our campaign will focus on promoting online safety awareness for parents and youth and promote awareness for how minors can be recruited on social media platforms.
Voice of La Jolla: BSCC Executive Director was interviewed on the radio to build awareness for a young woman in her 20s. Our notice to the public assisted in retrieving the young woman and reuniting her with family; this is now the second young woman that has benefited from Voice of La Jolla providing voice to vulnerability.
NBC Stolen: BSCC participated in the development of a mini-documentary series created by NBC San Diego. BSCC’s Executive Director addressed community vulnerability, preventing human trafficking, and some of the areas of need within the nonprofit community to increase victim services. Local colleges and universities, and nonprofits have continued to develop viewing events featuring STOLEN, including expert panels for the general public to learn more on human trafficking occurring in San Diego county.
CSEC County meetings: Monthly meetings have transitioned from in-person to being held virtually under COVID-19, BSCC continues to focus on prevention and early interventions addressing exploitation of youth (i.e., CSEC). We have also continued to advocate across the county on how intersectional vulnerability and human trafficking intersect, and the underreporting of labor trafficking cases during COVID-19. Meetings are held every second Wednesday of the month, with the exception of one canceled meeting.
Safe Shelter Collaborative: We have been active with the Collaborative attending meetings for the past 10 months. BSCC is actively conducting outreach at these meetings and has assisted nonprofits in accessing services. We consider this initiative an ongoing work in progress for promoting awareness on gaps in services and intensified need for housing availability in Southern California.
San Diego Human Trafficking Hotline Ad Hoc Committee: In February 2021, BSCC and other service providers have met to explore the feasibility for expanding San Diego’s Human Trafficking Hotline to increase sustainability and response time to suspected human trafficking cases. From February to April 2021, the Ad Hoc committee met three times.
