As the response to human trafficking in America continues to increase, the need for service providers to collaborate and stay connected is more important than ever. The National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance (NTSA) is a network of service providers committed to enhancing services and increasing access to care for survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Together, we are furthering opportunities for survivors to find hope in three strategic ways…

Alliance Referral System

Connecting survivors throughout the country with appropriate residential shelters efficiently and with dignity.

Membership & Knowledge Center

Equipping residential programs across the U.S. with the training resources to learn and grow in a collaborative community.


Providing accountability to
ensure survivors receive the highest quality of care from healthy, trauma-informed organizations.


Looking for Residential Services for a Survivor?

Use our Alliance Referral System (ARS) to connect with residential programs that can meet the specific needs for survivors of trafficking and exploitation. We are committed to responding to every referral within 24 hours.
