Measuring Outcomes for Survivors of Human Trafficking
Many programs offer comprehensive services to victims and survivors of human trafficking. However, better information is needed about how program participation changes clients’ lives. RTI has developed the Outcomes for Human Trafficking Survivors (OHTS) evaluation instrument, incorporating input from practitioners, survivors, and researchers at each step in the process. Designed to be completed by service providers about the clients they serve, the instrument measures client status in four key areas: safety, well-being, social connectedness, and self-sufficiency.
The user-friendly instrument, accompanied by an instrument user guide and instrument development brief, are publicly available at no cost. The OHTS research team is excited to share these resources with the hope of improving case manager service provision for victims of human trafficking, and ultimately outcomes for human trafficking survivors.
