Methods: Interviews with staff were conducted (n=13) to determine client needs, program services, and challenges in service provision. Interviews were coded and common themes were explored. Results: Client needs were identified that are consistent with previous research. Programming is focused on trauma-focused counseling, building economic self-sufficiency, and supporting reintegration. Challenges include lack of trained service providers, strained relationships with government aftercare homes, and insufficient time to provide needed services. Conclusions: Aftercare for survivors of sex trafficking provides an opportunity for sustainable recovery and rehabilitation for this population. Research should be directed at identifying and evaluating evidence-based practices. National and global policies should support expansion of aftercare services.
