Who we are

Innovations Human Trafficking Collaborative

Innovations Human Trafficking Collaborative (Innovations HTC) 
is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Olympia, WA, which has extensive experience in combating all forms of human trafficking and supporting those impacted by the crime. Innovations HTC was founded in 2016 by Jeri Moomaw, a human trafficking survivor, nationally known leader, and tireless activist. For the past 21 years, Jeri has provided human trafficking training and technical assistance to victim-serving organizations; medical and behavioral health professionals; courts and prosecutors; federal, state, and tribal agencies; and other community stakeholders. With a focus on systems, Innovations HTC provides unique training and technical assistance that not only develops response protocols but looks at the root causes of trafficking in communities and works to create prevention programs and systems-wide screening protocols. We believe that survivors of human trafficking are critical voices to inform the development of policies and that we must empower these survivors to meaningfully engage and participate in the anti-trafficking community without fear of re-exploitation.
IHTC’s initial focus was twofold:
1.) provision of trafficking-related training and technical assistance to federal, state, and tribal government agencies and 2) building the capacity of trafficking survivors to act as competent and expert professionals and engage in fulfilling careers. Our current work involves direct support of human trafficking survivors, training and technical assistance to improve victim identification and services, and pro bono legal services to help victims clear criminal records.

Programs include peer resource navigation, outreach, client advocacy, survivor leadership development through our Mariposa Project, and on-site professional development job placements. IHTC is also a national leader in human trafficking training, equity, LGBTQ2IA+ inclusion and CSEC/CSE in Tribal communities. IHTC works to raise awareness, create systems; such as response protocols and trauma-informed screening assessments, outreach and client emergency needs. Learn More


Our mission is to engage first responders, tribes, and other stakeholders in eliminating human trafficking through solution-based knowledge and trauma-informed strategies, and to empower survivors to heal and build self-sufficient, affirming lives.
