Gray Haven, but at the center of our programs and case management is
the relationship between the case manager and the client. It's beyond

The Gray Haven’s Crisis Response Team initially formed organically
when law enforcement would identify a potential victim of human
trafficking during operations in Henrico County to combat human
trafficking. Law enforcement would call and The Gray Haven would respond
24 hours a day/7 days a week. It became obvious that there needed to be
in place a sustainable method of responding immediately to potential
cases of human trafficking. The Gray Haven began to form their approach

Today The Gray Haven works with local, state, and federal
law enforcement, as well as with service providers, to do direct crisis
intervention and assessment with potential victims of human
trafficking. The overall goal of the Crisis Response Team is to assist a
third party agency in identifying a victim of trafficking and provide
immediate victim services. The Crisis Response Team is made up of The
Gray Haven staff and volunteers who are experienced and specially
trained to provide crisis intervention to victims of human trafficking.
The staff members are on-call to respond to victims 24-hours a day.
