Human Trafficking

There are clear intersections between human trafficking and sexual assault and intimate partner violence. Our comprehensive services to victims of sexual violence include supporting survivors of sex trafficking. Heartly House serves as a co-chair of the Frederick County Human Trafficking Response Team, where we facilitate training and education to various audiences on human trafficking. The collaborative work of the response team allows us to be part of the prevention of and trauma-informed response to trafficking incidences in Frederick.
