Human Trafficking Is Happening Here, Now.


What is Human Trafficking?


Human Trafficking is the exploitation of humans for profit, often categorized by sex and labor trafficking. It is a complex problem we face in our communities.

The Collaborative to End Human Trafficking began in 2007 and was built on the understanding that a multifaceted human rights and public health issue like human trafficking cannot be solved by one organization or system alone.

We recognized that only when we bring people together to unlock our collective potential can we create solutions that break the cycle of human trafficking.



The Collaborative offers educational programs on human trafficking for diverse audiences.


There is help and support in the Greater Cleveland area for victims of human trafficking.  Skilled individuals are on hand to listen, answer questions, and provide support for victims.
