Below is a story of a survivor of human trafficking who accessed services with Center for Domestic Peace (situation and details have been changed in order to protect the victim).

"Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP) received a call on their 24-hour hotline regarding a survivor who had escaped a sex trafficking situation and was requesting shelter. She had been abused, isolated, and intimated by her boyfriend who had promised her a safe home together.  

However, soon after she moved in with him, she agreed to have sex for money for one week so that they could raise money for both of them. As time went on, this situation turned into her being held against her will for two months being repeatedly sexually assaulted by up to 10 men daily. In addition, she never saw a cent of what she was promised. 

She stayed at the shelter for 30 days where she received support, case management, counseling and safety planning.  C4DP also provided economic support, transportation, and a safe phone for her to use."

 

Human trafficking survivors are often in serious danger.  If  you are a victim, survivor, or family member of a victim, you are not alone. There are safe, confidential services available for survivors of Human Trafficking.
