Due to the nature of human trafficking, domestic and sexual violence survivors are likely to need a number of services to support them on their healing journey. Community resource mapping can help identify the service capacity of your local programs and recognize any gaps in meeting the needs of survivors. Identifying .resources, cultivating relationships with other community service providers, and identifying points of contact for these resources is key for strengthening the coordination of services for survivors.  This webinar will discuss considerations, strategies, and tools for community resource mapping and building an interactive resource exchange to support survivors through collaboration.
