Every day, many men, women, and children find themselves being lured into human trafficking. Some find their way home, but most (98-99%) do not. Chains Interrupted is dedicated to providing resources for survivors and educating our communities, friends, and family about the dangers of human trafficking – and its very real presence in Iowa. From donations in-kind to volunteering, your generosity helps Chains Interrupted provide resources for victims to get out of the life, and assist survivors of human trafficking to thrive.
