In January 2015, the Ventura County Coalition Against Human Trafficking, also known as VCCAHT, was formed to address the growing issues of human trafficking in our county. VCCAHT is not an entity of its own, it is a collaboration of agencies in the county.

VCCAHT is comprised of law enforcement, social service providers, faith-based and community nonprofit agencies which directly interact with victims, and who are collaborating to address both sex trafficking and labor trafficking for adult and minor victims.


The 101 Freeway, which runs partly from Los Angeles to San Francisco, serves as a corridor for traffickers. People are bought and sold in hotels, home brothels, illicit massage parlors, and other locations lining the 101 Freeway.
