What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

According to the 2022 Trafficking in Persons Report, there are roughly 40 million people in slavery today. Labor trafficking is the most common form of human trafficking, with 24.9 million people in forced labor. Among other forms of human trafficking are sexual exploitation, debt bondage, and domestic servitude with outlets varying on a mass scale from the sex trade to agricultural work or domestic servitude inside homes. Our nonprofit takes the victim and survivor-centered approach to combating human trafficking. Victim advocacy and survivor reintegration will both allow the victim avenues for reporting crime endured as well as access to counseling while they can learn skills that reintegrate into society without fear of being retrafficked. Victims and survivors both come with a variety of baggage, including trauma and mental health concerns. Our goal is to have licensed professionals on-site to help connect victims and survivors to aid.

Victims of crime and abuse

Victims of human trafficking and violent crime often require specialized counseling to help them recover from their experiences. Christian counseling can provide a faith-based approach to healing that can be particularly effective for some individuals. Here are some resources and approaches to Christian counseling for victims of human trafficking or victims of violent crime:
HEART Model: The HEART model is an evidence-based Christian counseling model that can be used with victims of abuse, complex trauma, terrorism, and human trafficking. It emphasizes the importance of building a relationship with the client, creating a safe environment, and using a holistic approach to healing

Comprehensive Perspective: Counselors treating victims of human trafficking need to develop a wide-ranging view of assessment, treatment, case management, support, and advocacy. This comprehensive perspective can help counselors address the complex layers of multiple traumas that many trafficking survivors

Population(s) Served

Doula services can provide emotional and physical support to victims of trafficking and violent crime. Doulas are trained professionals who provide non-medical support during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. Here are some resources and approaches to doula services for victims of trafficking and violent crime:
Integrated Services: Integrated services for minor victims of human trafficking take polyvictimization into account and integrate evidence-based practices from systems serving child victims of crime. This approach can help ensure that victims receive comprehensive support that addresses all of their needs

One of our goals is to become trained in cyber investigations. Nonprofit cyber investigations into human trafficking can play a crucial role in identifying and prosecuting traffickers. Traffickers are currently using technology to profile, recruit, control, and exploit their victims as well as using the Internet, especially the dark web, to hide illegal materials stemming from trafficking and their real identities from investigators. Technology can also be used to identify victims and support police investigations and prosecutions. Researchers have met with federal, state, and local agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and technology companies to understand the challenges in identifying, investigating, and prosecuting trafficking cases. Once a human trafficking investigation is underway, the process of analyzing evidence to find probable cause for warrants, corroborate victim statements, and build a case for prosecution can be very time- and human-intensive.
