What people say about collaborating with TRUST
We are proud to work with so many community partners in the fight against sex trafficking. Our working relationship with TRUST gives us added resources in this fight. From training to coordinating on the ground resources we appreciate our enhanced abilities provided by TRUST.

One of the most dangerous and growing threats to children in Arizona is Human Trafficking. In working with TRUST, stakeholders across the state have access to training, resources and collaboration opportunities to help put an end to this horrific crime.
