Human trafficking is today’s practice of slavery. It is involuntary servitude and it is happening today around the world, across the United States, and in Ohio.  Those subjected to the crime are exploited through forced labor and commercial sex for another's financial gain. Victims include children and adults, men and women, and U.S. citizens as well as foreign born individuals.

The Collaborative to End Human Trafficking in northeast Ohio supports the fundamental human right to freedom by educating and advocating for the prevention and abolition of human trafficking while connecting services on behalf of trafficked persons.

The operative word in our name is “Collaborative”—we recognize that only in partnership with others can we ever hope to end human trafficking.

Human trafficking is happening around the world, in the United States, and right here in northeast Ohio. The Collaborative is raising awareness that this crime Happens Here Too. The Collaborative is currently heading Greater Cleveland’s Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking. This is a multi-disciplinary group of agencies and organizations that have come together to collaboratively address the complexities of this crime and to weave a safety net for those victimized by the crime.
