Empowering Survivors. Fostering Change.

what isHuman Trafficking?

When we hear the words “human trafficking,” it’s easy to believe that it’s a crime that only happens overseas – but the truth is, human trafficking happens right here at home, in the neighborhoods and communities we know and love. Human trafficking happens when someone is forced, coerced, or fraudulently convinced to work or to have sex for the benefit of someone else. It does not discriminate based on age, gender, socioeconomic status, race, or neighborhood.

Who We Are

The Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking (CCAHT) unites and equips our community – Knoxville and the 33 counties of East Tennessee – to end human trafficking through awareness, training, intervention, and aftercare. Through our direct services program, Grow Free TN, we offer a variety of trauma-informed, comprehensive services to individuals impacted by human trafficking. All of our services are free, individualized, and all-inclusive.

About Us

CCAHT has completely changed my entire life. I’ve been trafficked twice. I’m 43 and I’m just learning what a real hug feels like.

This is the first time I’ve experienced inner happiness.
