Human Trafficking

RCFCC takes a survivor-centered approach with clients who have experienced human trafficking by providing services such as safety planning, shelter, and counseling if needed.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is defined as "the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt, bondage, or slavery." (Trafficking Victims Protection Act)

What are we doing to combat human trafficking?

Here at RCFCC we are raising awareness of Human Trafficking across our state. We are raising funds to meet the basic needs of victims, such as food, shelter, clothing, and counseling. We provide trainings and foster essential collaborations between law enforcement, social service providers, educators, medical and criminal justice professionals, and other community leaders.

Common Myths

  • All trafficking is sex trafficking. There are multiple types of trafficking, including labor, sexual, and domestic servitude.

  • There must be movement for an act to be considered trafficking. Trafficking does not require movement; a person can be trafficked out of their own home.

  • All trafficking victims are foreign nationals. Victims are both US citizens and foreign nationals.

  • It's not happening in your community. Human trafficking happens across both rural and urban environments.
