Wanted: Local Heroes
Does your organization provide services in the community such as crisis response, counseling, food/meal programs, housing options, life skills training, mental health services, clothing, child care or legal services?
Are you part of an anti-trafficking task force or coalition that connects victims with service providers? Are you a private or public service professional that specializes in human trafficking cases?
If your organization offers services that might help a trafficked person, register with the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) so that victims of human trafficking can find the local help they need.
The Wisconsin Crime Victims Council and the Wisconsin Women's Council are collaborating with the NHTRC to build up the Wisconsin referral directory used by the NHTRC Hotline. If you know of an organization that should be listed in the hotline directory, email the Crime Victims Council and let us know!
