Office of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence
The Houston Human Trafficking website is a resource for individuals to learn about human trafficking and find out what they can do to end modern day slavery in Houston. The website’s goal is to increase victim identification and protect our residents by raising awareness about human trafficking and facilitating partnerships with community stakeholders. In 2020, the trafficking division of the Mayor’s Office was expanded to also address domestic violence.
