Along with providing immediate emergency direct services for victims of human trafficking, we take a holistic approach to healing; supporting each survivor’s unique journey from victimization to hope for a future free from exploitation
Human Trafficking is the illegal sale of human beings using force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation and/or forced labor.
The Salvation Army is deeply committed to the modern-day fight against human trafficking (for sexual and labor purposes) and forms of commercial sexual exploitation innately linked to sexual trafficking. The Salvation Army firmly believes that the abuse and exploitation of human beings through any form of human trafficking is an offense against humankind and against God. This belief, combined with our mission to meet human needs in His name without discrimination, motivates us to work vigilantly for the prevention of human trafficking and for the restoration of survivors.
Human trafficking is contrary to the principles of freedom and dignity. The exploitation of human beings dehumanizes the individuals who are trafficked, rewards the inhumanity of the traffickers, and weakens the moral and social fabric of society at large. The Salvation Army is opposed to the corrupt abuse of power against other human beings that is inherent in trafficking for personal economic gain. We, therefore, have the responsibility, both individually and collectively, to work for the liberation of those who have been enslaved in this manner, and to establish the legal and social mechanisms by which human trafficking can be stopped.
The Salvation Army's Anti-Human Trafficking Bloom Initiative in Connecticut is funded by a generous couple who committed to launch this important initiative in Greater Hartford.” We have additional programs in Willimantic (serving Windham county) and New London (serving New London county).
