What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Knowledge Center

Often, caregivers helping survivors of human trafficking everyday feel isolated as they face the challenge of overwhelmingly complex trauma and barriers in the recovery process of survivors. NTSA offers resources, training, and community to caregivers to help them enhance the quality of care they offer survivors.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people

Survivor services is a young field with the average age of housing programs for survivors of human trafficking being 8 years**. While many are providing high-quality services to survivors, there is no national, objective body holding these programs accountable. NTSA has developed an accreditation model specific to housing programs, ensuring that every survivor of human trafficking across the US receives appropriate, quality care.

** This average age listed is an average from our current general membership representing housing programs in 22 states. [Updated January 2021]

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
