In March 2014, Caravan Studios, in collaborations with Polaris Project, submitted a proposal in the final round of the Reimagine: Opportunity Challenge. The Challenge, managed by the Partnership for Freedom, sought innovative solutions to distinct problems within the issue of human trafficking.
Caravan Studios and Polaris Project each made it to the final round with separate proposals. As a part of the proposal process, they had the opportunity to spend three days together discussing their work and the opportunities. As a direct result of this, Polaris Project and Caravan Studios decided to combine their separate projects and submit for the final round together.
The Safe Shelter Collaborative is an innovative effort designed to bring more shelter space into the area of human trafficking. Through a combination of training, technology solutions and community engagement, the Collaborative will help provide appropriate shelter space to a wide range of human trafficking survivors.
