Emergency Assessment Centers

One organization cannot be the solution to combat the effects of sex trafficking. It takes a community of NGO’s, volunteers, churches, and public officials to effect change. In this episode you will learn more about what we call “the pipeline of care” which describes how service providers work together to help people who are coming out of trafficking situations. You will also learn more about Emergency Assessment Centers, what they are and why we need them in Houston.

Jeff Shaw Executive Director with Frontline Response, a Christian-based non-profit headquartered in the heart of Atlanta, serves on the frontlines every day rescuing men and women out of sex trafficking and homelessness and preventing vulnerable children from falling victim.
