We will be holding a series of listening sessions with federal partners to implement Cross Agency Priority 4 in the President’s Management Agenda to improve customer experience with federal services. The listening sessions will focus on improving access to services for survivors of human trafficking to reach housing and economic stability and exploring innovative workforce development ideas. The listening session also supports the HHS Aim for Independence Visit disclaimer page initiative that notes the importance of putting people at the center of programs and learning from local efforts to promote economic mobility.
In November 2018, we joined colleagues from the Social Security Administration to host the first national listening session on social security services for survivors of human trafficking as the first topic in the series. Access to social security identification cards and supplemental security income often marks the start of the path towards self-sufficiency for survivors of human trafficking. Access the recording, transcript, and program instruction resulting from that conversation.
