In 2015, North Simcoe Victim Services partnered with local police services to participate in Operation Northern Spotlight, an initiative to fight human trafficking by supporting sex trafficking victims.

Human Trafficking Q & A

Thank you for helping us support victims of Human Trafficking – by sponsoring the cost of Human Trafficking Support Kits.

NSVS Executive Director Frances Yarbrough (r) and field placement student Amanda VanBilsen fill the new support kits.

We have now put together 10 new Human Trafficking Support Kits, thanks to the generous cash and in-kind donations received during our fundraising campaign.

Victim support kits help us provide the care and nurturing that victims so desperately need. The kit contains a variety of items, from clothing and toiletries to snack food and coffee gift cards. The goal is to have a supply of the kits on hand to provide to victims when needed.

We have seen how much they are appreciated and they are an excellent tool to help us to begin to have a positive impact with the victims we encounter. The cost of the NSVS Human Trafficking Support Kits is approximately $100 each.

While NSVS is funded through the Ministry of the Attorney General, the organization relies on fundraising and community donations to support the resources that contribute to the valuable and practical assistance that clients need.

Donations will continue to be accepted here.
