Thanks to support from friends like you, we’ve trained more than 10,000 community members to recognize and respond to trafficking cases while helping survivors like Ariana and Faye navigate pathways to safety and restoration. Read our impact stories to learn more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the CCAHT do?

The CCAHT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides human trafficking training and education to our community, oversees a locally focused anti-trafficking task force, and provides comprehensive direct services to survivors of human trafficking across 33 counties of East Tennessee. Visit our Program page to learn more about our work and programs.


Is the CCAHT affiliated with a national organization?

No, the CCAHT does not have a national affiliate. We were founded in Knoxville in 2010, and though we collaborate with more than 40 partners at the federal, state, and local level, we are locally focused to East Tennessee. Visit our About page to learn more about our mission, team, and service region.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking happens when someone is forced to work or to have sex, and it does not discriminate based on socioeconomic status, race, or neighborhood. Most often, victims of trafficking aren’t trafficked by strangers; they are trafficked by someone they know. Visit our blog to learn more about human trafficking and how you can be an advocate for change in your community.
