Here in Portland, local advocates from various private sector and governmental agencies as well as specially trained law enforcement officers make contact daily with child victims of sex trafficking.

These children require assistance to meet their basic needs to move from being victims to becoming survivors.

Working in partnership with Multnomah County's collaborative effort to end Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC), Giving Connection is the clearinghouse for community donations for survivors of local child trafficking, collecting items requested by those who work directly with these children.

Giving Connection can help YOU be part of the solution. 

I joined Giving Connection because I believe all women and girls in my community deserve support and resources as well as raised awareness of their situations, and that includes sex trafficked survivors.
