|Mission||The Salvation Army Project FIGHT’s mission is to identify and serve victims and survivors of Human Trafficking in North Carolina.|
The Salvation Army is deeply committed to the fight against human trafficking. This commitment emerges from The Salvation Army’s mission and is rooted in the organization’s early history.
The Salvation Army was founded in London, England, in 1865 by the husband and wife team of William and Catherine Booth. The Booths went against Victorian conventions and took their ministry to the dirty and dangerous streets of London. Their efforts eventually evolved into a battle to protect women and children from the horrors of sex trafficking. The Salvation Army responded by opening homes for women and children , developing intensive “Rescue Work,” and advocating for this population to government leaders. The Salvation Army has been providing services to victims of human trafficking since 1884 when it first established a “Rescue Home” for women and girls escaping sex trafficking and prostitution in London, England. Now, more than a century later, The Salvation Army in the United States and around the world is part of a revived movement for the abolition of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Today The Salvation Army USA’s anti-trafficking efforts focus on four core areas: awareness raising and training, public policy advocacy, prevention, and trafficking survivor services.
In 2011, Project FIGHT was birthed in North Carolina with the goal of bringing freedom to individuals gripped by human trafficking across the state of North Carolina. Project FIGHT strategically targets 4 major components in order to effectively combat the varying and unique issues surrounding human trafficking: Education/Awareness, Outreach, Case Management, and Collaboration.
Project FIGHT serves both labor and sex trafficking survivors of all ages. Project FIGHT also serves male, female and LGBTQ, as well as, foreign born and domestic survivors.
