Ohio Safe Harbor Resource Card


Describes the steps for pursuing safe harbor diversion. Originally developed in the FY2017 iteration of the OVC Improving Outcomes grant, this Safe Harbor resource card was adapted in 2022 to reflect recent changes in Safe Harbor statute. The statute establishes access to juvenile justice diversionary programming for youth who have been charged with an offense related to their trafficking victimization, and this resource card provides a visual representation of that law and how it should be implemented. The card is utilized in trainings on Safe Harbor, with the goal of increasing utilization of this special protection for Ohio’s youth.
