Huron County | by Fadi Didi  

Executive Director Deborah Logue says many lessons learned during attendance at victim advocates conference in Phoenix.

The head of Victim Services Huron says some valuable lessons were learned about human trafficking, during a conference in Arizona.

Deborah Logue spoke on the issue at the 45th annual National Organization of Victim Advocates (NOVA) conference, in Phoenix, Arizona.

Logue also presented at last year's event in Jacksonville, Florida, and discussed how her agency works to combat the problem.

She tells Country 104.9 News she gained insight into better assisting support staff with burnout, and dealing with the emotional impact of vicarious trauma.

Although collaboration with law enforcement is helping to address human trafficking, Logue says education is the most imperative aspect of fighting this specific crime.

She says it is important for Huron County residents to understand how the trafficking of human operates in rural Ontario, and to be able to identify it.

Victim Services Huron is a registered charity that works closely with police, emergency medical services, and social service advocates to ensure members of our community are supported during and immediately after a crisis or traumatic event, such as domestic violence, sexual assault, theft/fraud, homicide, fire, motor vehicle collisions, etc.
