Our Mission

To fight human trafficking in our local community through Christ-centered strategic initiatives with the goal to reach, raise up, and restore. 

Human Trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry, second only to drug trafficking.

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to control victims for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or labor services against his/her will.

It is estimated more than 40 million people world wide are trapped in modern day slavery.


Every year more than 300,000 children in the United States are trafficked.


North Carolina consistently ranks in the top 10 states of reported cases of human trafficking.
