About Survive & Thrive Advocacy Center (STAC)
Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center is a coordinator and service provider for victims of human trafficking. Local, state and federal law enforcement representatives, as well as social service providers, know it can be extremely challenging to identify and assist victims of human trafficking because of their diverse needs and because human trafficking is a hidden reality. STAC was created to fill these needs and meet this challenge. To learn more visit www.surviveandthriveadvocacy.org or call us at 850-597-2080.
