North Carolina's Coalition against Human Trafficking Survivor's Network is a professional development and resource hub aimed at serving Survivors of Human Trafficking who want to learn and grow in their professional developments and advocacy skills.
The network acts as a bridge for Survivor-Leaders looking to use their lived experience and expertise to guide agencies and service providers on best practices when working with Survivors of Human Trafficking.
How we work with Survivors
The Survivor Network believes that Survivors of HT are the experts of their experience and should be the ones leading the way for communities and agencies engaging in any and all Anti-Human Trafficking work. We work with survivors to assist them in finding and developing their abilities. The network provides direct services to Survivors as well:
Survivor-Led Peer supported groups
New Dream Fellowship Funding scholarships
Peer Mentoring Support
Interpersonal and soft skills coaching
Paid opportunities to partner and work with Agencies engaging in Anti HT work including speaking and training opportunities.
Each survivor will have an advocate that acts as a liaison in their behalf.
No cost to Survivors
