Hands United has worked with marginalized populations and victims of human trafficking since 2014. Our goal has always been to provide support and life-enriching resources in order for individuals to reach a self-sustaining state. Our work enabled us to identify the pattern of these populations becoming at risk for human trafficking victimization, if they hadn’t already fallen victim to traffickers.
We decided to do something about it. Emphasizing our core belief, Unifying stewardship, allowed us to redefine collaboration. Partnering with organizations with experience in this area allows us to develop innovative methods while maintaining a strong plan designed to ultimately eradicate trafficking for forced labor, involuntary servitude, and trafficking for sexual exploitation altogether.
Hands United is scheduled to open our housing facilities in 2020. We will initially offer housing for up to ten individuals at one time. Two separate locations, one for boys and one for girls, will serve as housing during the two-year program.
