Wanted:  Local Heroes

If your organization offers services that might help a trafficked person, register with the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) so that victims of human trafficking can find the local help they need.

The NHTRC strives to provide survivors, advocates, law enforcement, and communities with local referrals to meet their unique needs in a given area.

Apply to be listed in the hotline directory as a Wisconsin resource
