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 or injustice. You can help.

The Salvation Army fights for justice through:

STOP-IT Anti-Trafficking Program

STOP-IT provides holistic services to people who are being trafficked (labor, sexual exploitation or domestic servitude). Through the STOP-IT program, The Salvation Army partners with Cook County State's Attorney and other social service agencies to help survivors leave trafficking situations and rebuild their lives.

Pathway Forward

The Salvation Army assists incarcerated men and women transitioning from prison to the community with the Pathway Forward program. Clients undergo counseling, access training programs and learn to reconnect with their families and communities.

Women's Restorative Justice Program

The Salvation Army offers assistance to homeless women and their families in Winnebago County, Illinois through the Women's Restorative Justice Program (WJRP). The program provides housing and supportive services for women in recovery from substance abuse who have recent criminal history. Women can participate in the program for two years.
