Who we are

The essence of the Lake of the Ozarks Stop Human Trafficking Coalition exists in our human spirit – the spirit and passion of those that serve and the spirit and determination of those who accept our services. We are dedicated to raising awareness of trafficking and serving those victimized by it.

We are a 501(c)3 non-for-profit organization, created four years ago to bring awareness to–and combat–the horrific human toil and economic consequences resulting from the exploitation of adults and children forced into commercial sex and forced slave labor. All this is happening right here at the Lake, right now.

In WHO WE ARE you will find all that you need to know about our people, mission, history and Frequently Asked Questions. If you want to learn more about our Coalition, just follow the links for more information. It’s extremely important to us that you get to know more so that you feel comfortable working together for our common goal.

If you are a victim or survivor, please call the National Hotline number 1-888-373-7888 (TTY: 711)|Text 233733 |Live Chat if you need help right away or you can reach us at (573) 723-1131.
