The Sacramento Rescue & Restore Coalition was founded in 2007 by the U.S. Attorney’s Office Eastern District of California, Opening Doors, and the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency (SETA). In April 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) awarded a cooperative agreement to SETA to build a Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking Regional Program. The purpose of the Coalition is to increase the number of human trafficking victims who are identified and connected to services in the Sacramento region, to raise public awareness, and to provide training and education on human trafficking.
In July 2014, Opening Doors became the lead grantee for the Rescue & Restore Program. Opening Doors provides comprehensive short- and long-term case services for victims, as well as outreach and community awareness. Opening Doors works with My Sister’s House to build local capacity to identify and serve human trafficking victims. My Sister’s House raises awareness and provides culturally appropriate services to Asian/Pacific Islander victims.
Opening Doors and My Sister’s House work together to expand and strengthen the Coalition to achieve program goals. The Coalition is a network of service providers, community-based organizations, state and local government agencies and law enforcement officials. The mission of the Coalition is to abolish human trafficking and ensure the liberation, dignity and well-being of trafficked persons.
