I never imagined I would get to see my son in person again, much less end up living with him here in the US. I thank God for putting you [NSC case manager] and this program in my path.

Human Trafficking is a crime involving the exploitation of another person for the purpose of compelled labor or a commercial sex act through force, fraud, or coercion. Where a person younger than 18 is induced to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud or coercion. Trafficking can happen in any industry and traffickers target all types of people regardless of race, gender, age, socioeconomics status, national origin, religion, or citizenship status.

We have worked with survivors of trafficking since 2009. Our Anti-Human Trafficking Program aims to identify trafficking victims and to provide services for foreign national survivors.

Victim Identification:

• Identify foreign victims of trafficking and refer them to services
• Outreach to vulnerable populations
• Provide training and technical assistance to local organizations
• Participate in coalition activities to strengthen local anti-trafficking efforts
• Increase public knowledge about human trafficking

Services for Foreign National Victims/Survivors:

Case management:  

• Support with basic needs such as housing and food
• Safety planning and emergency response
• Refer to health and wellness providers
• Assist in acquiring public benefits and documents
• Support in obtaining legal services

Legal services:

• Obtain long term immigration status, most commonly U or T Nonimmigrant status
• Aid survivors in working with law enforcement
• Evaluate other legal needs

If you believe you have information about a potential trafficking situation, contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline (NHTH) at 1-888-373-7888. Hotline specialists can help you determine if you have encountered victims of human trafficking, identify local resources available to help victims, and coordinate with local social service organizations to assist victims.  Hotline specialists are available 24 hours a day. All reports are confidential. Interpreters are available in 170+ languages.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 911.
