Resources & Shelters

If you or someone you know is in danger or you suspect someone isn’t safe, don’t keep it to yourself! You can always make an anonymous call – it could save someone’s life!

If you suspect something or need help, please call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888 or text at 233733 or chat online. You can also submit an anonymous tip through their website.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline team is neither law enforcement nor immigration service. They will lend an ear, provide advice and help you access the services you need.
