HUMAN TRAFFICKING PROGRAM

 

Our program will be dedicated to helping women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction heal and recover.

THE PROBLEM

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!

Section Title

Our Voice: Why Does Our Voice and Engagement Matter?
We believe every human being is uniquely and perfectly created in Gods image and He has 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.

 

Our Mission:

Is to make freedom and life transformation accessible and a reality for survivors of exploitation. Survivors will always drive our approach and there are three (3) solutions that have been identified as essential for freedom: Trauma informed counseling and spiritual life on life discipleship, Economic empowerment, and Housing.

 

Our Goal: New Life
Our program will be designed to help women move from a fight or flight existence to

purposeful, self-sufficient independent living. With a focus on breaking the mold of destructive habits, bad decisions (made by or forced upon the person); from suffering to human flourishing, through the process of Love, the gospel message and an encounter with the Holy Spirit.

 

Our Approach: Love Heals Because God is Love
We cannot do this work alone and making freedom real for survivors requires our entire community. We need a one stop shop with collaborative partners to offer services below.

1) Client Services – Counseling, life on life discipleship, medical assistance, Addiction recovery. Parenting, Education prevention etc...

2) Economic Empowerment – Life and Job skills training, Job placement, Entrepreneurial and Financial literacy education etc...

3) Housing – Transitional referrals with a goal of Independent communal living.

 

Invest in a Future of Hope

Let’s fight to interrupt the cycle of human tracking by working with others to help lead the exploited to freedom.

 

How Can You Help Sponsor Freedom? Give, Pray, Help us Build.

Your investment will help us to enter the darkness and fight to set captives free.
