The Survive & Thrive Advocacy Center (STAC) was founded because of the great need in the Tallahassee and Leon County area for comprehensive human trafficking victim assistance. The mission of STAC is twofold:
- to work with existing agencies and organizations as a single point of contact for those who are assisting victims, and
- to collaborate to provide needed services to victims such as shelter, case management, health care, legal services, education, job assistance, and counseling.
