Every day, many men, women, and children find themselves being lured into human trafficking. Some find their way home, but most (98-99%) do not.
Chains Interrupted is dedicated to providing resources for survivors and educating our communities, friends, and family about the dangers of human trafficking – and its very real presence in Iowa.
From donations in-kind to volunteering, your generosity helps Chains Interrupted provide resources for victims to get out of the life, and assist survivors of human trafficking to thrive.
Donations & Gifts
No matter how big or small, monetary donations help support our mission, purchase supplies for our survivor support group, and continue providing programs and services to organizations around Eastern Iowa.
We welcome donations via Amazon Smile, Stuff Etc. Cedar Rapids, and through our eBay store “Handbags of Hope”, where we sell gently used, high-brand purses from donors who want to help support our mission.

Volunteer with Us
If you have an interest in providing Chains Interrupted with a donation of your time, we welcome your skills to our growing team of volunteers.
Whether you want to provide administrative help, help us raise awareness in parades and other events, or would like to step up as a speaker for our program presentations, your time and talent is valued.
We also host an array of events throughout the year, including our annual Freedom Gala and our 5K Rescue Run, and can always use extra sets of hands to help us set up and run the event smoothly.
Handbags of Hope Donations
Did you find a gently used purse in your latest closet clean-out? Year-round, you can donate a purse you no longer use for Chains Interrupted to sell online. Contact us to offer your donation.
Inspired by a survivor, our eBay store “Handbags of Hope,” sells these bags with 100% of the profits benefiting our Survivor Support Programs.
From groceries and gas cards to everyday toiletries and clothing, we provide survivors what they need to help them get back on their feet.
