Interested in starting or broadening services for survivors of exploitation or trafficking?

We believe that survivors deserve to receive quality, comprehensive care. In recent years, there has been increased recognition that public, private and nongovernmental agencies must work collaboratively to respond effectively to the crime of human trafficking. We have seen the power of collaborative efforts in our own work. To ensure that survivors receive comprehensive care, there is a growing need for human service organizations to work together to address the complex needs of survivors.

Survivors often present with distinctive treatment needs. These needs can pose novel business challenges such as budgeting, strategic planning, and establishing fundraising and marketing strategies without re-exploiting the population served. In 2020, Ascent 121 launched LIFT to help bridge current service gaps and to assist other providers in tailoring their service provision to meet the unique needs of survivors.

LIFT offers three tiers of service. Each tier of service is designed to provide various levels of support for agencies interested in increasing their capacity to serve survivors and strengthening current programming.

  • TRAINING
    We are available to provide pre-designed and content-specific training related to working with the population. Each training is 60-120 minutes in length. Trainings can be offered at your location or may be delivered virtually.
  • CONSULTING
    LIFT provides guidance and advice for established agencies seeking to broaden or improve their services. Our specialized providers and business associates are available to support your efforts.
  • MENTORSHIP
    Through our most comprehensive collaborative relationship, LIFT assists providers who want to establish a well-rounded and specialized treatment program for survivors. Beginning with an assessment of your agency, we will walk alongside your team throughout the entire program development process, regardless of your starting point. Mentorship also includes routine consultation and training.
