With the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, the federal government acknowledged the critical nature of the crisis in human trafficking and created the framework by which victims of this modern form of slavery might be identified, protected and restored to independence and self-sufficiency. Under the auspices of the US Department of State, the Under Secretary for Democracy and Global Affairs, the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons was established. Severe trafficking is defined as “sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud or coercion or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age or the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services through the use of force fraud or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage or slavery.” (US Department of State – Trafficking in Persons Report 2010). Yet, 10 years after enactment, human trafficking remains a worldwide crisis. In 2010, 12.3 million adults and children were believed to be in forced labor, bonded labor and forced prostitution globally. Human trafficking generates an estimated 9.5 billion in annual revenue in the United States and it is estimated that between 17,500 and 18,500 people are trafficked each year into the United States. Clearly, much remains to be done.
It is SAFE‘s vision to end the suffering of victims of human trafficking, especially women and children by providing: A welcoming environment where victims can heal and find a new life in safe and secure housing, Access to service providers who partner to offer intensive case management, health care, legal immigration counseling, translation and educational services and work experience. Education for the general public concerning the issues of human trafficking. Safe provides the necessary education to inform communities and to provide emergency housing for trafficking victims. We have woman who will open their homes to trafficking victims in need of one or two nights respite while more stable housing opportunities are explored. These individuals have participated in workshops, opened their home for assessment and participated in formal training offered by one of the Safe collaborating partners. This program was initiated in 2017 and will continue to be expanded to service the growing numbers of women seeking refuge from their traffickers. We are currently planning the training of additional groups who have committed to participation in this program.
The work of Safe thus far, has demonstrated to us the tremendous need for longer term housing for women who are committed to rebuilding their lives independent of the trafficking situation. It is a natural next step for this blossoming organization to establish a safe house that will serve as a shelter and safe haven for women as they escape from their captors and heal from the trauma of trafficking. When these victims leave our Safe houses, our goal is not for them to survive, but to succeed.
