Human Trafficking

Human trafficking happens every day in our own communities. This crime continues to grow in the shadows of our society, and is one of the largest criminal industries in the world.

Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation and/or forced labor.

Our Programs

Education

We can all fight human trafficking in our daily lives. Our professional trainings and community presentations equip law enforcement, healthcare providers, teachers, social service providers and community members with the skills to recognize and respond to trafficking situations.

Why?

We all encounter trafficking situations and need the tools to respond.

20,885

Trained to spot and respond to trafficking situations in 2021.

Youth Prevention

Let’s stop trafficking before it starts. We work with teens and adolescents to develop the skills to recognize and safely avoid dangerous situations.

Why?

55% of domestic minor victims of sex trafficking aged 7-11 years old are recruited through social media apps and websites* *Thorn January 2018 Survivor Insights Survey

3,362

Youth trained to stay safe in 2021.

Direct Services

Sometimes we need a support system to catch us when we’re falling. Our trauma-informed program, Real Talk provides an outlet for at-risk individuals and survivors to process their trauma. We visit county jails, schools, juvenile detention centers and human trafficking safe homes, building an individual’s strengths to promote emotional strength.

Why?

Those with a history of past trauma, abuse and trafficking are at a high risk for human trafficking (re)victimization.

64

Trafficking survivors received case management services in 2021.

Outreach

Hitting the streets, we build relationships with homeless population and immigrant community. This way, we connect potential and current victims of trafficking with the resources to break free.

Why?

Labor and sex trafficking victims are often overlooked within homeless and immigrant communities. Their vulnerabilities place them at an extremely high risk to abuse and coercion.

9,942

Vulnerable people received pamphlets with ways to access help in 2021.

Coalition

United Against Human Trafficking is the founder and lead agency of the Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition. Made up of over 70 members from around the Houston area, we unite the local anti-trafficking movement. We envision a collective end to human trafficking in Greater Houston.

Why?

After facing trauma, survivors deserve the best care our city has to offer. By uniting a diverse group of social service agencies, faith communities, business and other organizations, the HRRC is creating a systemic solution of care and community resources for our great city.
