Cast applauds recent motions by the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors to address the housing and mental health needs of survivors of violence. We are encouraged by the County’s adoption of a public health perspective when addressing human trafficking. Cast has over 25 years of experience providing direct services for survivors of all forms of trafficking across Los Angeles County, and supporting policy, training, technical assistance. As an authority on human trafficking, Cast has presented several recommendations to the LA County Board of Supervisors. We invite you to read about Cast’s analysis and recommendations aimed at improving the mental health and physical safety of women who are fleeing domestic violence, sexual violence, and human trafficking in our support letter.
