JOIN THE MISSION
Over the next five weeks, we are excited to invite you to be the one to ignite Out of Darkness across the nation!
Since 2014, we have been operating branches of our Anti-Sex Trafficking Department, called Out of Darkness, in Middle Georgia and Ohio. Throughout this time, we have developed a proven prototype for outreach, rescue, and emergency safe housing in the fight against sex trafficking. Now, we have the opportunity to finalize this replicable model and continue expanding!
reached of our $100,000 goal!
“Our goal is not simply to expand, but to give people across the nation a way out of sex trafficking and exploitation.”
– Michal, Survivor Leader
The Out of Darkness initiative is a prototype for outreach, rescue, and emergency safe housing in the fight against sex trafficking.
Sought after nationally and internationally, Out of Darkness offers street & strip club outreach, drop-in center, jail mentoring, a 24/7 rescue hotline, safe home, crisis stabilization services, and long-term program placement. We also provide training to law enforcement, fire departments, emergency rooms, and judges as well as help lead anti-trafficking efforts around large events like the Super Bowl in numerous cities. In addition we advocate for state legislative and policy changes that have resulted in Georgia having the 4th best laws in the nation.
While we are making incredible impact, countless individuals are still left without adequate options.
In fact, 89% of women want to escape prostitution but don’t have other options for survival (Melissa Farley et al). And only 1 in 100 victims of commercial sexual exploitation that do attempt to access services are able to do so (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2012).
The funds from this campaign will go towards finalizing the Out of Darkness infrastructure — allowing us to begin replicating the model across the nation.
Your donation will make it possible for all future locations to meet the need in their city, and ultimately, rescue individuals out of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Your donation will bring hope and light to the darkness.
