Abstract (300 words maximum)

Over the years, human trafficking has become a very prevalent global issue that has affected all facets of a victim’s life and the world they live in. It impacts all people no matter their race, gender, age, religion, or ethnicity. Essentially, human trafficking has been characterized as a form of modern day slavery. While all peoples are affected by the atrocities of human trafficking, a majority of the research and resources are provided for minors leaving little research or resources for services for adults. Hence, the need for research that focuses primarily on services for adult victims of human trafficking. Furthermore, the research seeks to identify the needs for victim care services through evaluating current programs and barriers to service to adult victims. Data will be collected through a combination of qualitative and quantitative research including data from peer-reviewed scholarly articles, journals, graphs, charts, program descriptions and theoretical models. Conclusions will include trends and barriers regarding key areas such as victim indicators and risk factors, housing, public awareness, community training, victim care services (both short and long term) in order to provide recommendations and implications for best practices for future research and work within the nonprofit sector.
