Get Involved

By raising awareness about trafficking, you are bringing to light a crime that is shrouded in darkness and often goes unreported. When people see the issue more clearly, they can then act! Your work advocating against human trafficking is invaluable. For human trafficking to end, we need a critical mass of people to understand the problem and know how to recognize the signs.

Report Human Trafficking

CAST’s toll free hotline is available anywhere in the U.S. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with translators in multiple languages.

When you call the CAST hotline our hotline advocates will ask you some basic demographic questions, provide community referrals and/or complete our short prescreening questions to receive long term social services or legal services. Our goal is to help victims of human trafficking acquire legal protection, food, shelter and medical care. All our services are free.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock is a donation of stock or bond holdings to a charitable organization. A gift of stock that has appreciated in value creates a two-fold tax advantage for the donor: It provides an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting Cast.

Donors who contribute stock do not pay capital gains taxes on the increase in the value of the stock, and the full market value of the stock as of the donation date can generally be deducted as a charitable contribution. (Certain limitations apply; please consult your professional tax advisor for tax and estate planning guidance regarding charitable gifts.)

To make a stock donation to Cast, or learn about more ways you can help, please contact Melissa Fuentes at 213.364.6387 or
