Kane County, IL – January in Kane County marks a critical observance, as the State’s Attorney’s office highlights Human Trafficking Awareness Month. 

Addressing this often-overlooked issue, they emphasize the presence of human trafficking within local communities, urging residents to stay alert and report any suspicions. In an effort to combat this hidden crime, individuals are encouraged to reach out to the National Human Trafficking Hotline for support and to report potential trafficking situations.

According to the State’s Attorney’s office, the National Human Trafficking Hotline offers a lifeline to those at risk or affected by human trafficking. Providing 24/7 access, the hotline serves as a confidential resource for support, safety planning, and crisis intervention. It connects callers with urgent and nonurgent referrals and is staffed by trained advocates. 

Available across the United States, the service can be reached at 1-888-373-7888 or by texting 233733 (BEFREE). Assistance is offered in English, Spanish, and over 200 other languages through on-call interpreters. The hotline, funded by the HHS Administration for Children and Families’ Office on Trafficking in Persons, operates independently of law enforcement and immigration authorities, ensuring confidentiality for those who seek help.
