Strengthening Our Network
We love Columbus and desire to see united efforts in our city. We have chosen to partner with organizations by providing connections between existing resources, training volunteers, and offering workforce development for the individuals they serve.
We cultivated a partnership with the Columbus College of Art and Design to connect the passion of higher education with specific design and communication needs of local organizations. Out of that collaboration came The Survivor Care Alliance.
The Alliance exists to give freedom to anti-trafficking organizations so they can more completely focus on their strengths. We do this by creating a relational network of local anti-human trafficking organizations and resourcing that network with collaborative tools that boost innovation and organizational strength.
Five teams of Columbus College of Art and Design students were matched with five community organizations. Innovative resources were produced through improved communication tools to enable anti-human trafficking organizations to focus on client services. As one example, a team developed a brief animated video explaining the effects of trauma for use by Mount Carmel’s Crime and Trauma Assistance Program.
Dream Big | We'd love to record this process in order to create a nation-wide model for engaging the higher educational community in the fight against human trafficking.
