Partnership to assist sex-trafficking victims

The Columbian

Called to Rescue, a Vancouver organization aimed at ending child sex trafficking, has joined with the Giving Closet to provide basic items for victims.

The two Clark County organizations teamed up to provide clothes, toiletries and other basic needs for those recently rescued from trafficking. The plan is for the clothes and items to go to victims once Called to Rescue has opened its shelter.

Plans for the shelter for trafficking victims is in the works, though officials don’t yet have an opening date. Steve Johnson, spokesman for Called to Rescue, said the opening will likely be sometime early next year.

The Giving Closet provides clothes, food and certain educational opportunities for underprivileged Clark County residents.
