Our mission

Traffick911 is a team of passionate people driven to free youth from sex trafficking.

 

Our story 

Traffick911 began in 2009 by a local abolitionist who learned about this crime and decided that she couldn't stay silent. After months of research and connecting to networks across the nation, she pioneered training youth and first responders across Texas and built an enormous base of highly-trained volunteers, who have been instrumental in Traffick911's long-term success. 

In 2011, an opportunity to present at a juvenile detention center gave insight on what became a highly effective venue for reaching high-risk youth. Since then, Traffick911's work in partnering with juvenile detention centers has gained national exposure and hundreds of victims have been identified sitting in these jail cells. In 2013, Traffick911 opened Triumph House, a long-term residential safe house for survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking. 

Traffick911 was named the 2013 Outstanding Organization of the Year by the Fort Worth Commission for Women with commendations by the Fort Worth City Council, mayor and a State Senator. We have also been recognized by Homeland Security Investigations as a most-valued partner in this battle to save our American children from sexual slavery.

 

Our values

Traffick911 is a team of Christ-centered abolitionists. We believe victims of sex trafficking deserve the opportunity to be restored to dignity and purpose. As stewards of God's resources, we prayerfully seek to use wisdom and Biblical guidance for every dollar we spend. As leaders in the work God has called us to, our goal is to inspire change by informing and empowering activists, volunteers, first responders and local communities in order to see a world without slavery. 

We serve U.S. children regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender or sexual orientation. We believe the scope of this crime is too large for one organization to tackle alone; it takes all of us collaborating together, working across political, religious and social boundaries.
