Because NO Human Life Should Be For Sale

On a mission to end human trafficking through awareness,
education and outreach.

 

“We aspire for all people to experience freedom and live beyond bondage to others.
We envision a world that is intolerant of buyers and sellers of human beings.”

Human Trafficking


Slavery doesn’t just occur in history books. Slavery happens every day in our own communities. Human trafficking crimes continue to grow in the shadows of our society, and is one of the largest criminal industry in the world.

Human trafficking is modern day slavery. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation and/or forced labor.

Our Programs

United Against Human Trafficking is on a mission to end human trafficking through awareness, education and outreach.

Education

We can all fight human trafficking in our daily lives. Our professional trainings and community presentations equip law enforcement, healthcare providers, educators, social service providers and community members with the skills to recognize and respond to trafficking situations.

 

Why?

We all encounter trafficking situations and need the tools to respond.

12,386

Youth Prevention

Let’s stop trafficking before it starts. We work with teens and adolescents to develop the skills to recognize and safely avoid exploitive situations.

 

Why? 

55% of domestic minor victims of sex trafficking aged 7-11 years old are recruited through social media apps and websites*

*Thorn January 2018 Survivor Insights Survey

6,113

Students engaged in 2018.

Supportive Services

Sometimes what we need is a support system to catch us when we’re falling. Our trauma-informed program, Real Talk provides an outlet for at-risk individuals and survivors to process their exploitation. Conducted in county jails, schools, juvenile detention centers and human trafficking safe homes, this program builds an individual’s strengths to promote emotional resiliency.

 

Why?

Those with a history of past trauma, abuse and trafficking are at a high risk for human trafficking (re)victimization.

Individuals enrolled in 2018.

Outreach

Hitting the streets to engage with the homeless population and immigrant community, we connect potential and current victims of trafficking with the resources to break free.

 

Why?

Labor and sex trafficking victims are often overlooked within homeless and immigrant communities. Their vulnerabilities place them at an extremely high risk to abuse and coercion.

4,723

Potential and current victims engaged in 2018.

Coalition

UAHT is the founder and lead agency of the Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition. Made up of over 50 members from around the Houston area, we are uniting the local anti-trafficking movement. We envision a collective end to human trafficking in Greater Houston.

 

Why?

After facing trauma and exploitation, survivors deserve the best care our city has to offer. By uniting a diverse group of social service agencies, faith communities, business and other organizations, the HRRC is creating a systemic solution of care and community resources for our great city.

Support Services

Real Talk, a trauma informed program enhances an at-risk individual and survivor’s life skills, strengthens coping strategies, and prevents a chance of (re) victimization. Conducted in county jails, schools, juvenile detention centers and human trafficking safe homes, this program builds individual strengths to promote emotional resiliency.

Why?

Individuals caught in the criminal justice and child welfare systems are among the most vulnerable to trafficking, and their abuse is often unreported. Those with a history of past trauma and abuse are also at higher risk for human trafficking victimization.
