Providing Avenues for Victim Empowerment

Identifying and responding to human trafficking

An innovative platform that facilitates best practices and creates a single screening, assessment, and referral process for victims of trafficking.

  • Houses the initial screening an din-depth assessment allowing users to identify those at risk of being trafficked and to make the final determination that trafficking has occurred
  • Facilitates the reporting and referral capability ensuring that victim/survivors are offered the help they need wherever they are
  • Contains a directory of victim services, best practices, & training materials so users know how to best serve victim/survivors and where else they can receive services
  • Provides aggregate data reports to agency admins allowing agencies to meet reporting requirements with minimal burdens

Rooted in the Nebraska Human Trafficking Task Force, or NHTTF efforts to better identify and respond to trafficking as a system, so that victims can get the help they need.

Identifying situations of violence and exploitation is a major challenge, but it is critical for survivors getting access to the help they deserve. The NHTTF-led effort involved studying current community efforts to identify and respond to trafficking, reviewing dozens of existing screening tools, and developing an understanding of what would work. PAVE is the culmination of these efforts. Whether you’re a nurse or a parole officer, we equip you with the tools necessary to recognize situations of trafficking so you know what action to take.

1

First, victims should only have to tell their story once -so they can work on their recovery rather than reliving negative events.

2

Second, screening processes have to be streamlined, so service providers can focus on helping victims rather than paperwork. And they have to be confidential so victims are protected.

3

Lastly, the screening process implemented in a way that allows rigorous evaluation, so we can continuously improve our systems as a community.
