SAFE-T

 

Program Mission

To help survivors of all forms of trafficking
build their lives in a way that is
empowering and meaningful to them


The Salvation Army's Fight to End Trafficking serves survivors throughout Nebraska who have survived their trafficker or are looking for a way out. We offer comprehensive case management to help reach survivor's goals for life.

SAFE-T has worked diligently to find a number of different service providers throughout the state who understand basic dynamics of trafficking and can help solve problems and meet trafficking survivors' needs alongside a Trafficking Specialist.

What is trafficking?

Trafficking is modern day slavery. Those who have been trafficked worked for an individual who has either tricked them or used threats against the survivor or someone that survivor cares for in order to get them to engage in sexual activity or labor activities.

Money, favors, drugs or other items of value are exchanged for this service, but typically the surivor sees very little to no profit for their work. In the case of sex trafficking, many times traffickers promise a romantic relationship to lead men and women into sex work for their own personal gain.

Under federal and state law, anyone under the age of 18 exchanging sexual acts for something of value is a survivor of sex trafficking. There is no such thing as a child prostitute.

We are here to help

If you believe you have been trafficked and would like to learn more about our services, please call the National Trafficking Resource Hotline at 1.888.3737.888 and request to speak with a SAFE-T staff member in Nebraska.
