The National Human Trafficking Hotline is not a government entity. We are not law enforcement, immigration or an investigative agency. The National Hotline does not provide services directly to victims or survivors but rather connects them with vetted services and supports around the country. Since 2007, the National Hotline has been operated by Polaris, a non-profit organization that is a leader in the fight to eradicate modern slavery and help survivors restore their freedom. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other private donors and supporters.
