Mission

To protect the human dignity of trafficked persons worldwide through education, prevention, and rehabilitation programs

Notes from the Nonprofit

SAFECHR has the fundamental philosophy and success with breaking silos and create collaborative partnerships towards mutually beneficial goals of empowering all of humanity to succeed. We believe in volunteering and the philosophy of giving so that all of us are volunteers. Our board, executive director, program directors, financial advisor, engineers, architect, and marketing team are all volunteers and seasoned professionals each with at least 20 years of experience in our fields of specialization. We hope that you as a donor join us in our quest for a better world which we wish to leave behind. Perhaps we are not as large as some of the other organizations, but we have carved a name for ourselves In the field of saving children, trained experts from 73 nations as part of our most recent global conference, which is only the third such conference we hosted. We have carved a niche for unique and comprehensive program development for training, schools, and for rehabilitation.

What we aim to solve New!

We Need Funds for: 1. Problem: Only 2000 beds available in the USA for 300,000 children and youth. SOLUTION: SAFE Village: A unique restorative center that has never been developed before as most organizations are church based or advocate based and do not have the expertise or clinical skillsets to successfully run a large residential center. We are constantly fundraising to come up with the first phase of 6M for the land, three basic buildings, i.e, triage, cottage for 10, and multipurpose building, and treatment facilities. 2. Problem: Lack of standardization of training in human trafficking worldwide. SOLUTION: We have worked without taking any pay to develop a 10 module accreditation program working closely with CARF International,to get our training program accredited and train experts from around the world. Our first training was in Sept 2018 where 15 Experts and top officials from India, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Uganda, Sierra Leone, USA, Nigeria, Italy, Germany were trained.

PURPOSE:
o End Human Trafficking
o Raise Awareness
o Promote prevention
o Advocate for Social and Political change
o Rehabilitate victims
o Impact Public Policy

Conferences and Education; SAFE 2014, SAFE 2016, SAFE 2018 Specialized Skills-Set Training: SAFE iACT Program Prevention in Schools with the SAFESCHOOLS Program and the Youth Mental Health First Aid Programs Protection: Supporting Victims and Survivors with testifying in courts and trauma work Treatment: Trauma-informed Care and specialized human trafficking trauma work is done with victims. Survivors work closely with Clinicians in this paradigm shift of combating human trafficking.

We have 8 survivors on our advisory Council and all 8 are paid to do the work they do. Their flights, accommodations, and stay is taken care of by SAFECHR via the registration fees for conferences and by donors.

We have fully qualified clinicians, law enforcement, and trained staff to work with victims.

We have highly experienced internationally as well as nationally respected speakers for all our conferences.

Our conference programs are highly touted by local organizations that are trained and comments from Attorney's General's office of Victim Services in Indiana and others have been highly complimentary.

We have 35 years of experience in working with high risk youth.

By the changes in awareness, reporting numbers, placement of victims, treatment of victims and of survivors, and survivors achieving gainful employment as well as being recognized as the "experts" in the field. One outcome is already realized with the White House appointment of 12 survivors to the advisory board for input in 2016.

1. Training and education is ongoing with Massage Therapists now being trained all over the country after the regional President, Ms. Barbara Lis attended one of our trainings. 2. The Mayor of Michigan City, Indiana declared and proclaimed October 1 as the "Human Trafficking Awareness Day" after we hosted a conference in that city on October 1, 2015. 3. We have 8 Survivors who we can call on for speaking at our conferences as EXPERTS and each time we have four speaking and training. 4. We have trained 3000+ advocates and professionals in just less than 2 years 5. We have been awarded a grant to identify high-risk youth in Indiana and Illinois and training them in identification for risk of human trafficking. NEED TO ACCOMPLISH: Building a SAFE Village for 100 youth and mothers, with 80 females and 20 males which more than doubles the total number of existing beds in the entire nation. Cost: $6,000000.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
