Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Founded in 2002, Love146 works to end child trafficking and exploitation. In 2022, the International Labour Organization estimated that, at this present moment, over 3 million children are being victimized in sex trafficking and labor trafficking. We connect the dots to understand how vulnerability operates in the lives of children, and intervene both to care for survivors who have been harmed and ultimately to prevent harm from happening in the first place.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

US Prevention Education

Not a Number is an interactive 5 module child trafficking prevention curriculum designed to provide youth with information and skills in a manner that inspires them to make safe choices. Through open conversations, engaging activities, and the use of media, participants raise their awareness of human trafficking and exploitation. It moves beyond the traditional information deficit model, encouraging skill development. They learn to recognize recruitment tactics, understand vulnerabilities, and challenge harmful stereotypes. Youth also identify healthy support systems and practice navigating potential exploitative situations. The curriculum was developed for youth ages 12-18 and is inclusive of all genders, ethnicities, and backgrounds. While youth with high-risk indicators will particularly benefit, the program is designed to be implemented with and benefit all youth. Not a Number focuses on empowering youth through education and creating space for honest dialogue.

At-risk youth

In US Survivor Care, our Rapid Response meetings are designed for youth who are at very high-risk, suspected, or confirmed survivors of being trafficked. Depending on needs and risks that arise, most youth who receive Rapid Responses are referred for follow-up care, including some who move into Love146s Long-Term Survivor Care. Love146's Long-Term Survivor Care extends beyond immediate safety. Our specialized staff collaborate with youth as they build the futures they envision for themselves futures free from exploitation. We support survivors' holistic well-being, addressing needs like food, housing, healthcare, therapy, education, relationships, safety- planning, and navigating justice and other government systems. We incorporate activities and alternative therapies that help kids heal, build self-esteem, and just be a child: Things like music and pottery lessons, art and equine therapy, concerts, and outdoor adventures.

At-risk youth

Love146 provides international survivor care in the Philippines, focusing on providing a safe living space and holistic services for child survivors of sex trafficking. The program offers two safe homes-- The Round Home and The White Home. We provide long-term, child-centered, therapeutic services for these youth, with the ultimate goal of reintegrating them into their family and community. The program employs patience and creativity while working with hurting children, including regular counseling, activities to release their energy, lessons in art and music, constant praise for good behavior and talent, job counseling, and affirmation of their potential for good. All of these tools can facilitate growth and healing in children, and can help them realize the other options that exist for their lives.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
People of Southeast Asian descent
Victims of crime and abuse

Our Survivor Care and Prevention Education programs are about directly reaching children who may be affected by trafficking. But many more people in a community can play a role in helping stop child trafficking and exploitation. Stakeholders are needed in every community in order to ensure were building a safer world for children. Love146 strives to set a big table in order to foster both collaborations and the collective will to end child trafficking. We have resources, professional trainings, and outreach efforts that have supported many communities, including businesses, policymakers, service providers, caregivers, and the anti-trafficking field itself.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our work is achieved through the power of relationships and collaboration, listening to those with lived experience and diverse backgrounds, scaling proven practices, and challenging the systems that leave children vulnerable. Our prevention and survivor care work has impacted more than 70,000 young people. Our core commitment is to do what is best for children.

Strategic Priority 1: Continue to drive growth across Love146’s continuum of prevention training and adopt a 2- generation model for survivor care. Our goal would be to continue to move states along Love146’s prevention education continuum, including moving 3 states into state saturation and 3 states into training of trainers - and deepen survivor care by expanding our 2-generational care approach.

Strategic Priority 2: Engage in rigorous evaluation of programs. Our goal would be to complete the evaluation of our U.S. Prevention Education Program and undertake evaluation of U.S. Survivor Care Program.

Strategic Priority 3: Pursue broad based systems change through policy advocacy and community activism. Our goal would be to establish a policy advocacy program and invest in community activism.

Love146 has demonstrated expertise in trafficking prevention and Survivor Care. We have deepened and fostered new partnerships with local, state and federal governments. These partnerships have led to reaching more children throughout the US with our Prevention programs and Survivor Care. We expect further expansion in the next 3-5 years as a result of these partnerships. Key to achieving our goals are our core values, including collaboration, innovation, and perseverance. As specialists, we recognize that we are more effective when we collaborate with other specialists; as innovators, we imagine, develop, tweak, grow, and evolve solutions that work. Finally, we are undaunted. Our story isn't just about victories, triumphs, and fairytale endings — it's about not giving up. We embrace stories that never truly end: that have complexity, struggle, beauty, and humanity.

Love146 has developed tools for tracking our impact. We have developed an Internet-based app for tracking results of our Not a Number Prevention Education trainings, and we have developed an organizational impact report that tracks Love146 performance, including various metrics related to our Survivor Care programs. These results can be found in our Annual Report, and through Impact Reports that can be found on our website. Love146 has reached 3,616 children by Survivor Care; 63,834 children by Prevention and Community Education; and 1,721 professionals have been certified in Not a Number.

Over the next 5 years, the University of New Hampshire's Crimes Against Children Research Center will be conducting outcome evaluations of Love146's Prevention Education Curriculum Not a Number and Love146's Long-Term Survivor Care Services. These evaluations are being funded with support from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These evaluations are part of Love146's commitment to developing outcome-focused solutions.
