The Anne Arundel County Commission for Women has prepared this Anne Arundel County Combating Trafficking in Persons Protocol and Resource Guide and companion Tip Sheet to facilitate collaboration among agencies, organizations, and service providers who support to survivors of human trafficking. The guide lists agencies and organizations equipped to provide services specific to human trafficking survivors, as well as local resources for referrals within Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and across the United States. Please be advised that this resource guide is not exhaustive, and not all survivors may be accepted by some agencies because of their specific provider requirements.
The Anne Arundel County Commission for Women was created in 1975 to serve as a resource and advocacy group for women of the County and to advise the County Executive on issues of significance to women. The Commissioners, comprised of women with different backgrounds and occupations, represent various areas of the County. The County Executive appoints Commissioners who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for the women of our County.
The Commission has expanded its advocacy to also include the families of Anne Arundel County. The Commission works cooperatively with public and private organizations, government agencies, non-profit groups, and with other women’s advocacy groups to bring about solutions.
Comprised of a group of eighteen women with different backgrounds and occupations the commissioners represent various areas of the County. They are appointed by the County Executive to serve a two-year term and are dedicated to improving the quality of life for the women of our County.
