what we do

CAST's three-pronged, client-centered approach

Advocacy & Coalition Building

CAST partners with NGOs and government agencies, locally and internationally, to build a powerful movement to end modern-day slavery. See a list of our coalition partners here.


CAST reaches out to communities where potential victims of trafficking may reside, and offers training on identifying potential trafficking victims.

Client Services

Once a victim has been identified and rescued, the long process of rehabilitation and true emancipation begins. CAST provides survivors with legal representation, social services, and shelter—free of charge to our clients.

Survivor Advisory Caucus

Slavery is alive and well. But emancipation is possible—CAST's Survivor Advisory Caucus is living proof. Former CAST clients have organized together to act as activists to abolish human trafficking—lobbying for policy change, and speaking publicly about their experiences. Watch and hear their inspiring stories of survival here.
