Human traffickers can be found anywhere and it is here in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Human trafficking is the exploitation of men, women, and children through force, fraud, and coercion for the purposes of commericial sex or labor. Our program identifies victims and serves survivors being exploited in factories, massage parlors, pimp-controlled prostitution and domestic servitude such as nannies and housekeepers. Those being exploited are different ages, gender identities, nationalities, and come from different ethnic and economic backgrounds. It is an issue that impacts the whole community and one we can all contribute to ending.
We are on a mission to generate public awareness, increase the identification of local victims and assist in the coordination of services for victims in our neighborhoods. As part of the End Slavery Cincinnati coalition and in partnership with law enforcement and other community partners, our efforts include emergency response, outreach and case management for victims, group counseling, court advocacy and responding to other needs of the community in addition to providing comprehensive care to trafficked individuals. We operate a 24 hour hotline through which we respond to tips from community members and the needs of individuals being exploited. Anyone can call the confidential line to report or to get help:
