Safe Harbour

Safe Harbour is New York’s response to the federal regulations Bill 4980 regarding trafficking and exploitation.  Safe has been awarded as the Safe Harbour designee for Schenectady County.  This allows Safe to develop a collaborative task force, a community awareness campaign, provide case assessment referrals in collaboration with the County Multidisciplinary Team and Child Advocacy Center, refine interview strategies for Department of Social Services and Safe, train all staff in trauma focused care, and improve long and short term housing as well as provide holistic services to the victims of trafficking through enhanced case management.
