“The Collaborative remains committed to creating a strong coordinated response across Greater Cleveland in support of those who have been trafficked.”
Karen Walsh, President/CEO
In this time of crisis, each of us are rightfully focused on many impactful and sometimes scary realities, both personal and professional. We want to assure you our Board of Directors and staff remain hard at work to ensure the safety net developed by the Collaborative and its partner organizations is strong and intact in the Greater Cleveland region. We know that communities which care for one another survive their struggles.
It is imperative, now more than ever, that we step up for those residents at greatest risk, including those who are victims/survivors of human trafficking.
It is no secret that the Covid-19 pandemic is causing a financial hardship on many organizations and the Collaborative is no exception. The Collaborative’s reliance upon grants and charitable contributions makes us susceptible to the harsh realities of difficult financial decisions. We need your help to continue the coordinated and comprehensive effort to address human trafficking. No matter your ability to give at this time,
please know that we are extremely grateful for you and that, together, we WILL continue to make a difference for those who need us most.
The Collaborative is excited to welcome Joe Savarise, Executive Director, Ohio Hotel and & Lodging Association, as our Keynote Speaker.
Joe will discuss what the lodging industry is doing to address human trafficking in Ohio, including OHLA's significant work with the Collaborative's Greater Cleveland Coordinated Response to Human Trafficking program.
