Local, state and federal law enforcement representatives, as well as social service providers, know it can be extremely challenging to identify and assist victims of human trafficking because of their diverse needs and because human trafficking is a hidden reality.
STAC was created to fill these needs and meet this challenge.
• Provide emergency and joint case management for victims
• Work with existing agencies and organizations as a single point of contact for those who are assisting victims
• Promote public awareness of human trafficking
