New Hampshire Human Trafficking Task Force and Give Way to Freedom End Their Partnership

            CONCORD, N.H. - The New Hampshire Human Trafficking Collaborative Task Force and Give Way to Freedom have ended their partnership. Give Way to Freedom had served as the Project Director for the Task Force. Going forward, the Task Force will adopt a new management structure and will seek to install a new Project Director.

 

            The Task Force is funded by a $1.3 million grant from the United States Department of Justice. Its goals are to ensure that comprehensive and specialized services are made available to victims of human trafficking through a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach and that perpetrators of sex trafficking and forced labor are investigated and prosecuted.

 

            The Task Force appreciates the efforts of Give Way to Freedom in helping to secure the federal grant and its dedication to helping human trafficking victims.

 

          The core team members of the New Hampshire Human Trafficking Task Force are the Manchester Police Department, Child and Family Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) - Homeland Security Investigations, and the United States Attorney’s Office.
