He's proclaimed January Human Trafficking Prevention Month.The Toolkit organizes information, resources, tips and tools drawn from the wealth of information gathered when the two service systems were convened through local collaborative projects funded by the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) of the U. In this Toolkit, DV/SA providers will find information designed to increase their understanding of runaway and homeless youth and the network of programs and services working with them and, conversely, RHY providers will find resources on intimate partner violence and the programs and networks that provide protections and support to victims of violence.An increased understanding and dialogue between these systems at the service level can result in improved services overall.This Toolkit should be viewed as an ever-developing resource for the field.As additional information, tips, tools, best practices, curricula, or other materials are identified or developed, they will be added to the Toolkit.Thanks also to the FYSB RHY/DV/SA collaborative project grantees who shared their lessons learned, tools and information with us.
