Availability of Shelter Beds

Between January and June 2012, Polaris Project conducted a survey of anti-trafficking organizations  providing shelter services with the goal of estimating the total number of shelter beds available to support human trafficking survivors in the United States. Human trafficking-specific shelters and programs have varying capacity for different types of survivors. In fact, these shelters and programs are especially rare for male survivors, and there are no dedicated beds for labor trafficking survivors in the U.S.

The survey report is found at Shelter Beds for Human Trafficking Survivors in the United States.
