Anti-Trafficking Casework Intern

Our organization is determined to reach those at risk and in need in our community. After working with teens in
prostitution since 1995, Source began Source’s Anti-Trafficking Department in 2010. Source has partnered with
local law enforcement and the FBI to advocate for victims and survivors of human trafficking and sexual
exploitation. In 2018 Source was the Victim Resource Coordinator for Super Bowl LII, enabling us to continue to
grow in our outreach to victims of exploitation in our community. Following the Super Bowl, we continued our
partnership with law enforcement during the NCAA Final Four Tournament in April of 2019.
Source takes a holistic approach to supporting survivors of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Through our
Casework Program, we strive to be a friend and a voice to our clients. We want to provide a message of hope
and opportunity to our clients so that they can be equipped and empowered to make a break from the past and
build foundations for the future. As a Casework Intern, you will learn the dynamics of working within a non-
profit organization and play a crucial role in our Casework Program.

Caseworkers are trained and supervised to provide one-on-one community-based support to survivors. They
equip clients with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve their goals and empower them to reach a place
of confident independence.
