24/7 Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Crisis Hotline: 423.755.2700

Human Trafficking

Partnership’s dedicated staff provides an assessment of the current needs of the individual to create a plan for services which may include counseling, legal advocacy, court advocacy, housing and employment services to assist in their recovery. Immigration referrals and services are available to victims of human trafficking who are foreign born.

Human Trafficking victims may access all services available through the Family Violence Center and the Rape Crisis Center. We work closely with local law enforcement, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Homeland security to ensure confidentiality and improve service delivery, investigation, arrest and prosecution of the case.
