Oregon Department of Justice: Trafficking Intervention Program
The Trafficking Intervention Program was created in Spring 2015. The goal of the program is to develop a comprehensive statewide response to human trafficking that encourages cooperation and coordination across state and local agencies. The Program assists counties and tribal communities in developing the necessary infrastructure to identify trafficking victims, provides training and technical assistance for law enforcement and community partners, and assists with the development of victim service programs for trafficking survivors.
In Multnomah County, the New Day partnership provides services to youth and young adults (ages 12-25) who have experiences of trafficking or at risk. This partnership is a unique collaboration between three local providers New Avenues for Youth, Raphael House, and Call to Safety. For more information about referral and access as well as a service menu, please see attached.
Call To Safety serves as a central line you can call; experts on staff will help determine the right agency and next steps. Please download the Multnomah County Services Menu and Map below for your reference.
