Trafficking is on the rise in the U.S., increasing 36 percent in 2016. Nearly 17,500 people are trafficked into this country each year.
All 50 states have reported incidences of trafficking, but Nebraska especially sees higher instances of trafficking due to interstate highways and high-profile events.
The mission of The Salvation Army's Fight to End Trafficking (SAFE-T) program is to help survivors of all forms of trafficking build their lives in a way that is empowering and meaningful to them. We provide victim-centered services that address the continuum of needs suvivors face, from crisis stabilization to comprehensive case management for intermediate and long-term needs.
SAFE-T leads the Nebraska Human Trafficking Task Force alongside the Nebraska Attorney General's Office. Together we work diligently to coordinate a wide array of collaborative services through agencies across the state of Nebraska who understand the dynamics of trafficking and can help solve problems and meet survivors' needs.
For immediate help, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888, open 24/7, and ask to speak to a SAFE-T specialist in Nebraska.
