The Hands United program relies on a holistic approach to individual restoration. We work with human trafficking survivors to heal physical, psychological, and sociological damage. Starting with a focus on individual self-development, we continue to build on this reinforced foundation.
We believe that a family unit is crucial to a healthy, transformative journey. Of course, there are many versions of a family unit; traditional(reuniting), foster, and/or nontraditional family units within the Hands United organization.
As our residents move into their second year in the program, we initiate the introduction/reunion of the family unit into the curriculum. This allows both the family and the resident to build healthy communication skills, and establish a trusting relationship.
We continue the relationship with our residents through mentorship, monthly group counseling sessions, and alumni events.
Safe place program
In partnership with the local Safe Place agency, Christian City, we are working to expand the locations of Safe Place sites that are readily available for youth in need in our communities. Safe Place is a program of the National Safe Place Network. The program is a youth-initiated intervention that is quick, confidential, and free.

A runaway and/or homeless youth is most likely to be targeted by a trafficker/recruiter within the first 48 hours. The program aims to intervene quickly and provide a community of support around our younger generations. Safe Place sites act as “boots on the ground” and allow an effective way for businesses and community partners to get involved. After training and certification, businesses display the safe place sign that serves as a beacon of hope for those in need.
Ready to volunteer? Human trafficking victims require your compassion, and help! We invite you to work with Hands United.
We ensure that all partners against human trafficking have essential knowledge needed to work with human trafficking victims, as well as the best practices applicable within each project or campaign.
Within the Hands United trafficking victim assistance program, we collaborate with different organizations, and provide specific training depending on the project. This allows us to learn from experienced experts, and apply that knowledge accordingly.
