Safe House Project | Serving & Empowering Survivors of Sex Trafficking
Who We Are:
Safe House Project is a national leader supporting survivors of sex trafficking in America by accelerating safe house networks and ensuring restorative healing and empowerment. Our vision is to see communities across America unite to end domestic sex trafficking and restore hope, freedom, and a future for every survivor.
A Glimpse at the Problem:
Hundreds of thousands of people are sex trafficked each year in the United States.
300,000 American children are sex trafficked each year (commercial sexual exploitation of children includes prostitution & pornography)
1% of these victims are identified each year
There are 1,044 beds for survivors of sex trafficking, and less than 100 beds are for child sex trafficking survivors.
Without a safe place to go, 80% of victims end up back in their trafficker’s hands
There is a lot of work to be done to eradicate sex trafficking in America.
We focus on 4 impact areas that we believe address the deepest need to serve and empower survivors--safe houses.
Accelerate Domestic Shelter Capacity - “The #1 Need” - The Survivors’ Voice
Grow National Network of Shelter Resources - A National Pipeline Creating Local Impact
Empower a Survivor’s Path to Freedom - Enabling Purpose and Independence
Advance Domestic Trafficking Prevention & Education - Education that inspires Action
"Treatment came into my life when I didn’t want my life anymore. I had no one, nothing. I was hopeless, helpless, and alone. I needed something only treatment could give me: people who understood me and refused to let me forget my worth. It was all the love and support I didn’t know I needed." - Survivor Hope Doe
