The Alliance Referral System (ARS) directly serves survivors of trafficking and exploitation by offering them a way to connect with appropriate and qualified long-term residential programs efficiently and with dignity.
Anyone across the U.S. can use ARS to help survivors connect with a residential program.
For many years, seeking help meant that survivors or their Advocates (those assisting survivors to find services) had to make dozens of calls and emails to programs --- often to find out that a program is no longer active, they don’t have any openings, don’t serve a certain age group, or can’t meet the specific needs of the survivor. That’s why NTSA launched the Alliance Referral System!
Survivors and Survivor Advocates can make a referral by submitting one form, and our ARS Team will match the survivor’s individual needs to appropriate residential programs in our network. After processing, residential programs will then contact the Survivor and Survivor Advocate about their program.
You do not need to be a member of NTSA to submit a referral through ARS. Anyone across the US can use ARS to help survivors connect with a residential program.
