  • Developed a master lease contract, the first of its kind in Utah, with Salt Lake City Housing Authority to set aside 3 housing units (space for up to 9 survivors) specifically for trafficking survivors.
  • Trained over 4187 community members in human trafficking awareness
  • 80+ new collaborative partners, 25+ new/renewed formalized MOUs
  • Provided support services to 25 unduplicated women monthly through drop-in center (outside of temporary closure during COVID lockdown).
