Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida has landed a major federal grant, and that’s good news for Broward County human trafficking survivors.

CCLA will use the $349,995 award from the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs to provide “critical, trauma-informed” legal services to survivors, Victoria Sexton, a South Florida attorney who represents survivors, said in a statement.

“CCLA is the only program in Broward County that ensures access to the legal system for survivors of human trafficking,” Sexton said. “We recognize the need to continue and expand services to survivors. Human trafficking numbers continue to increase. This funding will help fill the gap in services needed for survivors in Broward County.”
