LUM Joins IPATH Task Force

IPATH logoThis week Lafayette Urban Ministry joined IPATH (Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans) task force. IPATH was formed to end human trafficking in the State and in the process ensure that victims are treated compassionately and have access to appropriate services. IPATH is comprised of law enforcement specialists, social service providers, health providers, legal service providers, awareness and education organizations, as well as passionate community members. LUM was invited to join IPATH in conjunction with the Immigrant Assistance Program that is expected to be launched in the next year.

By bringing together local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, IPATH has been able to create inter-agency working relationships, build strong cases, analyze and utilize best practices in the field, increase specialized training for agents and officers, prosecute traffickers and protect victims of human trafficking. In addition IPATH has partnered with the Julian Center and Exodus Refugee Immigration, to leverage grant funds from the U.S. Department of Justice to provide comprehensive case management and services to persons who have been trafficked.
