The Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking, an International and Domestic Anti-Trafficking Agency, is a 501(c)(3) organization that has been helping victims of human trafficking since it’s creation in 2004.  The FCAHT spearheads a holistic, comprehensive model used to combat human trafficking. The model is comprised of five major components:

Education and Awareness: Paramount to the fight to eradicate human trafficking is the need to bring the issue to the forefront of community consciousness. FCAHT conducts numerous outreach campaigns to equip community members with the knowledge to identify human trafficking victims and report their suspicions to the appropriate authorities.

Victim Services: Upon identification of a human trafficking victim, FCAHT initiates a continuum of services for the victim. The continuum of care incorporates basic needs such as shelter, food and medical attention and spans to encompass victim advocacy, financial literacy, legal representation, and job preparation.

Policy Development: FCAHT is continually involved with lawmakers in an effort to bolster existing laws and further empower human trafficking victims.

Technical Assistance and Training: In an effort to create a cohesive response to identifying and responding to cases of human trafficking, FCAHT provides ongoing training to professionals serving within the following capacity: law enforcement, prosecutors, non-governmental organizations, healthcare workers, and faith-based organizations.

Research Partnerships: FCAHT participates in research projects striving to develop promising practices in the delivery of services to victims of human trafficking.

Food

There are hundreds of hunger centers in Memphis/Shelby County, including countless churches that provide food to the community as part of their ministries.  Because there are simply too many of these programs to list individually in this guide,  please see two key referral sources (2-1-1 and the Mid-South Food Bank) that can be called during business hours to direct you to a location closest to you.  We’ve also provided a few other organizations that offer emergency food assistance, although programs listed in other sections of this guide (such as housing) often provide food to clients as well.
