The Coalition to Combat Human Trafficking in Texas was born from a small group of thoughtful, committed residents of Texas border cities and large Texas cities (including several of us from SLBC) who gathered in Laredo, Texas in November 2015. Our lives were forever changed after hearing stories of two of the many victims of human trafficking, and the passion to learn more and to serve victims was born in our hearts. A unanimous commitment was made by the individuals attending to form a coalition between Gateway Cities (points of entry into Texas) and Destination Cities (where victims actually end up enslaved) to address the issue.

The goal of CCHT-Texas is to bring collaboration between the Gateway cities and Destination cities to BREAK THE CHAIN of human trafficking before victims are lost into the trafficking maze.
