    About the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance

    Estimates for the number of people at risk of becoming trafficking victims in the United States varies widely from 100,000 to 300,000. What is most consistently expressed is the dearth of qualified shelter care programs to aid survivors in their healing and restoration back into society.

    The National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance (NTSA) is a network of service providers committed to enhancing services and increasing access to care for survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. By forming a network of residential care facilities which serve this population, NTSA aims to foster a responsive community of members, improve the capacity of agencies to do their work, and enhance the credibility of this field.

    NTSA is working to achieve this mission with a three-pronged approach:* Knowledge Center - NTSA offers resources and training opportunities to service providers to help them enhance the quality of care they offer survivors.* Alliance Referral System (ARS) - NTSA facilitates a referral system to streamline the process of connecting survivors to qualified residential programs across the US. Referrers, both independent individuals and affiliated agencies, directly refer trafficking survivors to NTSA to be appropriately placed into certified residential programs.* Accreditation - Accreditation refers to the evaluation and recognition that an organization or program meets a certain set of official standards. NTSA has established Minimum Standards and is working to develop an accreditation model specific for residential service providers for survivors of human trafficking.

All applicants who are offered an internship with the NTSA will be subject to a background check. Offers of interning are contingent on the successful completion of a background check in accordance with the NTSA policy and state law.

Internships with NTSA are unpaid, but can be used towards college credit. NTSA can provide a letter of recommendation upon completion of the internship.
