Our Objectives

First, ALERT seeks to educate the public about human trafficking to raise awareness of the problem. This includes training sessions for law enforcement and talks with community groups. We seek to improve the detection and prosecution of human trafficking cases, in order to prevent future exploitation of migrants.

Second, ALERT provides direct services to aid and support victims of trafficking. Those services include providing victims with safe and secure shelter, food, medical and mental health care, translation, and immigration services. We also provide longer-term services such as permanent housing and employment assistance.

Finally, ALERT seeks to establish a regional network throughout Arizona to expand the reach of its anti-trafficking initiative, bringing information and services to law enforcement, community-based organizations, and services to people trafficked throughout the state.
