SIROW Joins Anti-Trafficking Task Force to Implement Community Drop-In Center

By Candace Black

As part of SIROW’s partnership with the Southern Arizona Anti-Trafficking Unified Response Network (SAATURN), Drs. Black and Stevens coordinated with CODAC Health, Recovery & Wellness and the Tucson Police Department to hold a one-day drop-in center for victims of human trafficking. The event was held September 8, 2018, and coordinated with local community agencies (including faith-based organizations and LGBTQ+ inclusive organizations) to provide services including medical and STI screenings; mental health and substance treatment referrals; housing assistance and referral; connecting victims with medical insurance, legal support services, education and employment assistance; and assistance for undocumented victims. The drop-in center was open to all victims of human trafficking.
