What is TVAP?
Shared Beginnings is an approved U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (TVAP) provider. TVAP clients are screened by an immigration attorney prior to their acceptance into the program. Our connections with the Arkansas Justice Collective and the University of Arkansas Law School allow us to provide these screenings.
Once accepted into the program, our TVAP team provides trauma-informed, person-centered, comprehensive case management services to Marshallese women who are victims of adoption human trafficking. Our services can include but are not limited to: housing/utility assistance, financial planning, ESL classes, life skills training, and Driver’s Education. The goal of this program is to see victims of trafficking be empowered to build strong and lasting relationships while striving toward stability.

If you need a community who gets it, you’re in the right place! Whether you are weeks into life after placement or years, we offer support services to meet you where you’re at in your healing journey.
Life Skills Classes
The biggest goal of our TVAP program is to help women and families reach stability. These women are encouraged to come to all of our Birth Mom Support Groups, participate in giving back to the community, and become work ready if they are not already employed.
Virtual English classes are open to anyone and are offered a few times a week for convenience.
