The Haven Program was developed as a residential answer for human trafficking survivors of any age. Families that volunteer to be a safe haven home welcomes a survivor to live in their home; become a part of their family and experience a warm, welcoming, safe home environment. Unlike customary foster families - Haven Home families agree to take in only one survivor. Human trafficking survivors of any age often experience complex trauma, PTSD, severe physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Living in a home with other foster "children" becomes difficult for the survivor as well as the foster family. Haven Home families work together with our LIfeboat Project team of professionals while the survivor is a part of the program. Individual needs are met in collaboration with all members of the treatment team, the survivor, and the foster family.
Haven Home families are intricately involved in the lives of their survivor and assist every step of the way working towards healthy independence.
All Haven Home families receive training before and during placement and agree to submit to a background check and providing personal references.
If you would like to explore the possibility of becoming a Haven Home please fill out the questionnaire on the volunteer page.
Our professionals are willing to appear for presentations at the local and national level to help raise awareness and develop a true understanding of the magnitude of this modern evil.
If you would like us to speak at your school, church, organization, or community event let us know.
