Together we work to combat human trafficking by bringing awareness, education, training, and victim services to the North Texas region.
C7HTC members offer direct services to individuals, families, schools, businesses, and communities to help them establish human trafficking prevention strategies, identify and advocate for victims, and provide recovery services for survivors. Our members work throughout Denton, Cooke, Collin, Grayson, Dallas, Tarrant, and Wise counties.
C7 Human Trafficking Coalition is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
