Our Referral Advocacy Services
Human trafficking is a crime against an individual for the purposes of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation. It’s something that has happened against someone without their consent. If you believe you may have information about a trafficking situation, make a report through the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
Fight to End Exploitation provides referral advocacy services to victims and survivors of human trafficking by collaborating with multidisciplinary community partners locally, statewide, and nationally. Our trained advocacy team works to help those impacted by trafficking and exploitation receive individualized care and services. Referrals include:
- Housing and shelter needs
- Mental health services
- Legal aid
- Immigration advocacy
- AODA counseling
- Safety and or exit planning
- Support victims in need of emergency medical care
- Support victims working with law enforcement
Additionally, through our Southeast Wisconsin Regional Resource Network, we provide hygiene and self-care items, clothing, seasonal items such as winter gear, and gift cards for groceries, medication, gas, and fast food.
If you or someone you know is in need of referral advocacy or resources from the Southeast Wisconsin Regional Resource Network, please call or text our CareLine at (414) 485-5370. Our CareLine is available Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm CST.

Our Commitment to Victim and Survivor Advocacy
Victim services are trauma-informed and evidence-based. Our empowerment model of referral advocacy respects an individual’s autonomy and self-determination. We are committed to a victim-centered, multidisciplinary response. In a victim-centered approach, the victim’s wishes, safety, and well-being take priority.
