Individual Technical Assistance

CAST's Training and Technical Assistance program serves professionals exclusively, including legal providers, social service providers, law enforcement, and program managers. If you are a survivor in need of assistance, please contact the CAST Hotline, 1-888-539-2373. We often experience a high volume of demand. We endeavor to respond to a technical assistance request within 15 business days, but this is not always possible. Due to the high number of requests we receive, priority is given to requests from (1) OVC and OVW grantees, (2) requests related to court or filing deadlines, and (3) those who have completed a CAST e-learning course or in-person training.

For Document Review requests:  As part of our updated protocols for document review, we now require that everyone requesting a document review complete two of our e-learning courses: Human Trafficking Defined and T Visa Part 1. This includes completing the self-assessment following each course. We will not be able to review your documents until these prerequisites are complete.
