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.

Human trafficking is the exploitation of a person for compelled labor or a commercial sex act through force, fraud or coercion.

While there may be noticeable increases in human trafficking during high-profile events, the reality is that human trafficking is happening every day in communities across Nebraska and affects all races, genders and ages. It is a major criminal industry driven by a demand for cheap labor, services or commercial sex.

Trafficking is covert in nature, and survivors of trafficking may not self-identify. Education and training on how to recognize human trafficking in our communities, as well as conscientious actions we can take to end the demand for cheap labor, services or commercial sex, is essential in the fight to end trafficking.


The Salvation Army of Omaha fights trafficking through:

SAFE-T

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.

Wellspring

Wellspring serves adults who are currently involved in or have a history of sex trafficking, prostitution, exotic dancing or survival sex. Individuals of any gender identity or sexual orientation who wish to make changes in their lives will find counseling through this program. Learn more.
