Mission

Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States. It is estimated that human trafficking generates many billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of transnational crime.

Human trafficking is a hidden crime. Victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of the traffickers, and/or fear of law enforcement. Traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to lure their victims and force them into labor or commercial sexual exploitation.

Our mission is to provide solution-based strategies that empower individuals and organizations to eliminate human trafficking with empathy and compassion.

History

Innovations HTC began in 2016 after Jeri saw a need for collaboration between survivor led movements and law enforcement, government, and other service providers. Drawing on her years of experience as a nationally recognized trainer, she created a curriculum to assist organizations with developing victim-centered, trauma-informed response protocols, prevention programming, and instituting system-wide changes.

In 2017, the first cohort of survivors attended The Mariposa Project.
