The STOP Foundation
HUMAN TRAFFICKING PROGRAM
Our program will be dedicated to helping women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction heal and recover.
Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel a person into commercial sex or labor. Globally, human trafficking generates $150 billion in illegal profit. That’s more profit than McDonalds, PepsiCo, and Disney combined. Like any other multi-billion-dollar business, supply and demand is everything. Trafficking is locally prevalent and destructive to communities throughout Florida. Most victims will not seek help or self-identify until a relationship of trust can be established via a series of touch points. In fact, over 90% of victims will never even consider going to a safe house or program because of the many day to day obstacles they face.
We believe there is a solution for them!
Our Voice Matters: Join the Fight With the STOP Foundation
We believe every human being is uniquely and perfectly created in God's image and there is a
plan and a purpose for every life. That He can redeem the broken, the unlovely and bring beauty and meaning to their lives. Human trafficking is an offense to the sanctity of life. It is evil and prevalent in Florida.
Our Mission: New Life
Is to make freedom and life transformation accessible and a reality for survivors of exploitation.
The Stop Foundation is non-profit organization making freedom a reality with three (3) data informed solutions identified as essential for freedom:
1) Client Services – Trauma informed Counseling and life on life discipleship, Legal, medical, and addiction recovery referrals etc. ...
2) Economic Empowerment – Employment and Life skills, Entrepreneurial opportunities
3) Housing – Referrals and independent communal living opportunities
Our Goal: Reduce Barriers to Freedom. Restore Hope.
A recent survey revealed that over 90% of survivors never make it to a safehouse due to barriers and lack of trusting relationships. Our initiative will be designed to help women move from a fight or flight survival to purposeful, self-sufficient independent living. With a message of unconditional Love and hope found in the Gospel.
• Reduce the number of survivors that are still in the grips of despair, oppression and on the streets.
• Bring services to a central location (mobile office) eliminating transportation and other barriers in Florida.
• Build relationships that inspire trust and hope.
Our Approach: The Bus STOP
We cannot do this work alone. Securing freedom requires an entire community effort, so we will function as a bridge and collaborative partner with other agencies. We need a one stop shop (Mobile Office) approach offering (Client services, Economic empowerment, and Housing).
Invest in a Future of Hope: Not on our Watch!
30% of survivors will be trafficked again due to a lack of aftercare survivor support. Let’s fight to
interrupt the cycle of human tracking by working together to help lead the exploited to freedom.
