Allies introduced the Tier One screening tool in 2016 to help professionals identify victims of human trafficking. Using indicators and open-ended questions informed by field experts and survivors, service providers could quickly identify signs of possible exploitation. As adoption of the tool expanded, Allies engaged with Masterworks in 2017 to enhance and scale the platform, which was re-branded as in 2019. Since then, Masterworks has continued to expand the capabilities of Lighthouse with integration of the Commercial Sexual Exploitation Identification Tool (CSE-IT), data sharing features for care coordination teams, and enhanced visualizations.
