Ohio's Response to Human Trafficking

Toolkit for Serving Survivors of Trafficking in Ohio

As public awareness grows, more victims are identified, and the tactics of traffickers evolve, our tools must also evolve to respond to the needs of victims and the environment in which we are serving them. This toolkit serves as a framework and compilation of tools developed by our Task Force, the Ohio Network of Anti-Human Trafficking Coalitions, the Ohio Human Trafficking Commission and other resources created by federal and grassroots partners. The documents here are intended to support a victim-centered framework for Ohio’s service providers and coalitions as they work to assist survivors in their own communities.
