Guiding Principles

The VHT-NC Program incorporates trauma-informed and person-centered models to assist Native American victims of human trafficking. A trauma-informed care model assumes that clients have experienced trauma. This model includes organizational change that promotes resilience in clients and staff, engages individuals in care, prevents re-traumatization, and incorporates knowledge about trauma in policies, procedures, practices, and settings.
