WHAT WE’RE DOING
With an estimated four million women and children enslaved in the sex and labour trade worldwide, The Salvation Army is committed to the liberation of human trafficking victims and the restoration of their freedom, dignity and self-respect.
In British Columbia, The Salvation Army is embracing the issue of sex trafficking with a mission to curb the demand and supply of the industry through increased public awareness. The Salvation Army has partnered with government, other social service agencies and the public to identify victims, offer rescue and provide rehabilitation through the creation of a strategic continuum of care for trafficked persons.
Worldwide and in British Columbia, The Salvation Army has already helped victims as they emerge from the nightmare of sex slavery. With your help, The Salvation Army may provide secured emergency shelter, pre-treatment assessment of needs, addictions counseling where applicable, trauma counseling, transitional housing, assistance with immigration services where applicable, and pro bono legal services.
