Actions Salvation Can Take against Human Trafficking
Awareness Initiatives

The Salvation Army raises awareness of the injustices of human trafficking by partnering with local coalitions. Through prevention activities and our work to reduce demand for forced labor and commercial sex, we prevent future crimes. We also partner with survivors and strategic partners to improve the identification and prosecution of local traffickers. Read The Salvation Army’s 2019 National Impact Report.

We give ongoing care to those escaping the life of human trafficking. Along with the immediate needs of shelter, transportation, food, and clothing, we address physical and psychological trauma through a variety of services, including:

  • Medical and dental
  • Survivor advocacy
  • Crisis intervention
  • Safety planning
  • Employment assistance
  • Legal aid
  • Translation
  • Job development
  • Repatriation
  • Social service benefits
  • Substance abuse treatment
  • Childcare
A Legacy of Justice

For more than 150 years, The Salvation Army has stood firmly behind women and children subjected to organized commercial sexual exploitation. In the 1800s, we pioneered an undercover sex trafficking investigation, which directly shaped the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. By 1900, The Salvation Army had created over 100 “rescue homes” throughout London to help those fleeing prostitution. Over a century later, we remain fully committed to abolishing the sex trade from every corner of the world.

Serving All Without Discrimination

In providing its anti-human trafficking programs and services, The Salvation Army is committed to accommodating all those in need without unlawful discrimination or harassment based on age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, disability, citizenship, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or any other characteristic in accordance with our capacity to help.
