Along with providing immediate refuge and relief for victims, we take a holistic approach to healing;
helping each client move from a state of victimized enslavement to God-centered self-sufficiency.
Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.
This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the United States.
We provide sustainable care to those fleeing the life of human trafficking.
Along with immediate needs including shelter, transportation,
clothing and food, we answer victims’ physical and psychological
trauma with a portfolio of services including:
The Salvation Army partners with local coalitions to raise public awareness of the injustices of human trafficking. By planning prevention activities and working to reduce the demand for commercial sex and forced labor, we prevent future victims. By improving the identification and prosecution of local traffickers, we help rescue and restore current victims.
For over 200 years, The Salvation Army has been advocating for the rights of women and children subjected to organized commercial sexual exploitation. In the 1800s, we pioneered an undercover investigation of sex trafficking, which helped shape the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. By 1900, we had established over 100 "rescue homes" throughout London to abet safe escape from prostitution. More than a century later, we continue to fight for the abolition of sex trafficking worldwide.
