The Salvation Army has been providing services to victims of human trafficking since 1884 when it first established a “Rescue Home” for women and girls escaping sex trafficking and prostitution in London, England. Now, more than a century later, The Salvation Army in the United States and around the world is part of a revived movement for the abolition of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Our efforts focus on four core areas: awareness-raising and training, public policy advocacy, prevention and trafficking survivor services. We participate in many local coalitions and working groups dedicated to ending human trafficking, and are frequently called upon to provide food, shelter and clothing at a moment’s notice.

The Haven ATL (Haven Atlanta) program is dedicated to seeing the city of Atlanta free of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and the damage it causes to communities, families and individuals. CSE is rapidly destroying lives of women and girls across the country, state and in our community.  Atlanta has a thriving adult entertainment industry including strip clubs, lingerie and sex shops, escorts services, massage parlors and street prostitution.

Our vision for Haven ATL is to rescue and restore by giving girls and women a place to receive the resources they need to leave a harmful lifestyle, realize their worth and dignity, heal from the wounds of abuse, and help others do the same. We also educate the community of Atlanta on the reality of commercial sexual exploitation in our city, train and educate community leaders on the issue, develop prevention and intervention strategies, and strategically serve, investigate, and rescue women and children out of commercial sexual exploitation through prayer, outreach and program service delivery.

This February 27th, join us and others from around the world as we shine a light on commercial sexual exploitation!  Draw a RED X on your hand and tell your friends that human trafficking exists and YOU WON’T STAND FOR IT. Use your influence to help carry the message of freedom so more people will know. Let’s END IT now!
