Humans should never be for sale.

Humans Should Never Be For Sale.

Along with providing immediate refuge and relief for victims, we take a holistic approach to healing;
helping each client move from a state of victimized enslavement to self-sufficiency.

Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.

This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the U.S. but Cook County (Illinois) law enforcement arrests more sex traffickers than anywhere else in the country. And young women ages 15-24 are the most targeted.

The Salvation Army fights for human and social justice.

The Salvation Army believes nobody is for sale and that everybody needs a second chance. We fight for people who are being trafficked, giving them support and resources to leave the situation. We help inmates re-enter society as productive members of their communities.

Save someone from a life of enslavement. You can help.

Every day in America,
people are still sold into slavery.

The Salvation Army STOP-IT program worked with nearly 400 trafficking survivors last year.

A donation of $250 will help a trafficking survivor restart his/her life.Help them start over.


The sex trade preys on children.

The average entry age of American minors into the sex trade is 12-14 years old. Many victims are runaway girls who have already suffered sexual abuse.
