What is Human Trafficking? 

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.

Statistics 

  • Women and girls make up 98 percent of victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation. 
  • The average age a teen enters the sex trade in the United States is twelve to fourteen years old. 
  • Many victims are runaway girls who were sexually abused as children. 
  • According to the US State Department, human trafficking is one of the greatest human rights challenges to this century, both in the US and around the world.

Effective January 1, 2019: ARISE! International will expand its scope of outreach to include survivors of human trafficking in our educational support and recovery program. To this point, our focus has been on survivors of child sexual abuse. However statistics have shown that many of those that are caught in the trap of human trafficking have experienced sexual trauma in childhood.


After escaping or being rescued from human trafficking survivors face many challenges in order to reclaim their lives to a place of stability: housing, medical, employment, counseling, etc. Those items we are not able to provide but what we bring to the table is a comprehensive recovery program where they will be empowered, embraced and encouraged as they make the emotional journey toward restoration and recovery. We are seeking to partner with other human trafficking agencies to assist survivors in regaining their dignity as a person of value and worth after being so devalued and dishonored.
