“LCHT’s response to human trafficking can and should be used as a model for other states. Because LCHT is an organization informed by data and research, collaboration with survivors, multidisciplinary efforts from partnerships across the state, and values of social justice and human dignity, their local response is more likely to produce lasting, beneficial change.”


Danielle F., 2020 LCHT Intern

“LCHT is run by well-informed individuals passionate about making macro and micro level changes to combat human trafficking in Colorado. The most impressive aspect of this group is their prioritization of the experience and autonomy of survivors, not what they read in academic journals or hear from policy makers.”

Colleen Devlin, Volunteer Hotline Advocate

“LCHT’s training enabled me to consider the labor aspect of human trafficking, which I really had not considered much before. It allowed me to develop a plan of action to train our clinical team to address these issues nonjudgmentally— with compassion and empathy. It also taught our staff members to address any human trafficking issues that our patients may present with during treatment planning.”
