What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons or modern-day slavery, is a crime that involves compelling or coercing a person to provide labor or services, or to engage in commercial sex acts.  The coercion can be subtle or overt, physical or psychological.  Exploitation of a minor for commercial sex is human trafficking, regardless of whether any form of force, fraud, or coercion was used.

Where are we Now?

With any trauma, consistent care is vital to ensure positive outcomes, and the same goes for survivors of sex trafficking. 

When a child is rescued, that child is likely going home or somewhere that is not equipped to handle the aftermath of the complex trauma that occurs with trafficking. This can lead to a rescued survivor missing school, needed therapy appointments and ultimately falling through the cracks and failing to thrive.

I believe that a survivor, if given the right tools and support, can learn to thrive again, outside of their trafficked life. It’s our goal to be able to assist those that need the help the most, in the best way possible with a home they can call their own.
