Who we are
Founded in 2010, INH is a 501 c-3 non-profit organization based in San Diego that grew out of concerns about human trafficking circuits operating between the U.S.-Mexico border, the busiest international land crossing in the world.
We bring communities and governments together to help rescue women and children from human trafficking and sexual violence. Our leadership includes a dynamic team with more than 15 years of experience managing human trafficking cases in the U.S. and in Mexico. Our membership consists of moms and dads, students, professionals, governmental and non-governmental organizations, law enforcement, and academic institutions who collectively form an international network of hearts committed to bringing hope, safety and empowerment to survivors of human trafficking and sexual violence.
To restore the lives of survivors of human trafficking and sexual violence, and prevent commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor through increased awareness, training, advocacy and collaboration at an interdisciplinary and international level.
A world where women and children are valued, protected from violence and exploitation and their human rights are defended.
