Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings for the purpose of exploitation or commercial gain through force, fraud, or coercion.
DVIP offers direct services to victims/survivors of human trafficking.
DVIP is proud to be the fiscal sponsor for the Johnson County Human Trafficking Coalition (JCHTC).
JCHTC is a group of medical providers, law enforcement officials, attorneys, community agency providers, and education staff that are working together to raise awareness of the issue of human trafficking in our community and take steps to combat it. JCHTC’s goals include, but are not limited to:
- Building a hospital protocol for the U of Iowa and Mercy ED
- Creating and providing law enforcement pocket cards that will be handed out at their upcoming training in January 2020
- Holding another conference once funding is available.
- Building networks in Johnson County
