Operation Underground Railroad has partnered with Selah Freedom to provide quality care to survivors of human trafficking.
Selah Freedom aims to end sex trafficking and bring freedom to those who are exploited. In 2010, Elizabeth Fisher Good, Laurie Swink and Misty Stinson learned about the reality of child sex trafficking within their communities and were inspired to take action. The organization started as a grassroots initiative of women across the United State who wanted to be “a voice for the voiceless.” The movement quickly turned into a thriving organization that focuses its efforts on the following four programs:
Survivors in these programs receive life skill training, mentorship, job placement and personalized education plans. They also have access to a variety of services: trauma therapy, art therapy, pet therapy, horse therapy, medical and dental aid, and legal aid. Selah Freedom also strives to reunite survivors with their families.
Based in Florida and the Midwest United States, the team at Selah Freedom partners with law enforcement, legislators and influential leaders to raise awareness of the issue of sex trafficking and make a difference within their communities.
Operation Underground Railroad and Selah Freedom partner to ensure survivors of sex trafficking receive quality care. Selah Freedom is a referred resource for many survivors that O.U.R comes in contact with. Through the efforts of both organizations, survivors are able to find the healing they deserve.
We loved this quote from one of the survivors who has gone through the Selah Freedom programs: “I am not the person I used to be. I am strong. I am brave. I can do things I never thought possible.”
