Intervention Training


Gracehaven trains professionals who may encounter victims of domestic minor sex trafficking on how to recognize and help them. Child protective services, social workers, foster parents, healthcare professionals, teachers, parole officers and emergency first responders are just a few of the groups who receive this training.

Trainings have been conducted for, among others: Ohio Association of Child Caring Agencies (OACCA), Center for Family Safety and Healing, Ohio Adolescent Health Centers Program Directors, Ohio School Board Association Conference, staffs of Huck House, YMCA PALS (truancy diversion), and Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Ohio State University, school personnel and teachers at Columbus Public, Dublin, and Upper Arlington Schools, Columbus Public Health Department STI clinic nurses, Nationwide Children's Hospital - Adolescent Medicine, and Mt. Carmel community health care workers.

In 2014, Gracehaven was authorized to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to social services and healthcare professionals for it’s DMST training.  This CEU program in 2015 was expanded to include training for cosmetologists who are required to complete a one hour course on trafficking before January 31, 2017.
