Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition

Press Release

The Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition is honoring its mission to work alongside community members in providing awareness, education, services, and safe housing for victims of human trafficking.


In the past two years, the Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition has expedited its efforts to fulfill its mission. This year these efforts will include evaluating what is working and what isn't, strengthening statewide partnerships, expanding awareness and education, and ensuring that individuals have the right to housing, services, and supports, removing the process of criminalizing victims.  

Solace House Outpatient Clinic opened its doors in June 2019 and provides trauma-specific services and supports through trauma counseling, case management, and peer supports.

Harbor House will officially launch in the first quarter of 2020 and is committed to ensuring safety through emergency and transitional housing for women fleeing sex trafficking. Work continues on opening Solace House, a safe house for minor victims of sex trafficking, ages 11-17. Each housing program will provide a continuum of care through the Solace House Outpatient clinic and community partners. 

Idaho Anti-Trafficking Coalition has a team that works with the community to provide training and education, awareness, and advocacy throughout the state that can be requested anytime through the website at idahoatc.org.

Without community involvement, partnerships, and full transparency the Coalition wouldn't be able to successfully do this work, while honoring individuals who have the most important voice in this critical effort!

How to help: 


You can collect items on the needs list (to the right) and contact The Blue Backpack Project through their website for a drop off location. This is a great project to complete as part of a group, family, church, or office. 


In addition to the care items, The Blue Backpack Project accepts donations to help purchase backpacks. Additionally, you can donate gift cards in increments of $25 which will be used to purchase food, phones, and new clothing for each individual.
