The Salvation Army is committed to fight for freedom internationally and in the United States. The Salvation Army works in collaboration with local and federal law enforcement and numerous Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), to provide comprehensive services for all victims of human trafficking. We are a leading NGO in the U.S. in the fight against human trafficking. We offer programs and initiatives in over 43 locations nationwide that help domestic or foreign nationals of any age, race, ethnicity, or gender who are survivors of sex or labor trafficking.
Our strategic action plan includes four key areas in how we fight for freedom:
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 and task forces to raise public awareness and provide cross disciplinary expert training on key topics of human trafficking such as: understanding human trafficking in the United States, understanding trauma, creating trauma informed aftercare services and investigative task forces, recognizing red flags and increasing prevention. We seek to improve the identification of both sex or labor trafficking in the U.S. and collaborate with other organizations and authorities to put an end to the ongoing exploitation of children and adults across our country.
From the very beginning, The Salvation Army has been advocating for the rights of girls and boys, women and men who are 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 in the U.K. By 1900, we had established over 100 “aftercare restoration 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.
