Cast's mission is ending modern slavery through education, advocacy and empowering survivors of human trafficking.

Cast provides life-transforming services to survivors and a platform to advocate for groundbreaking legislation. Over the past two decades, Cast has supported thousands of survivors through every phase of their journey to freedom from counseling, to legal resources, to housing, educational and leadership training and mentorship. Through these programs, Cast has helped empower survivors to overcome their traumatic pasts and become leading voices in shaping policy and public awareness to ultimately put an end to the fastest growing criminal enterprise of the 21st century.
