We are an organization dedicated to Doing the Most Good in your community.

Who We Are

The Salvation Army is a leader in the fight against human trafficking. Through trauma-informed strategies, the STOP-IT program offers direct services to all survivors of sex and labor trafficking, regardless of their age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or immigration status. STOP-IT also works with local, state and national partners to educate the community and enhance the larger societal response to human trafficking.


40,200 human trafficking cases have been reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline since 2007.

This form of exploitation exists all over the United States.

STOP-IT helps survivors leave their situation and move forward on their own terms.
We connect them with resources for:
  • Safe shelter
  • Food
  • Clothing and Toiletries
  • Obtaining Identifying Documents (birth certificates, state IDs, etc.)
  • Medical, Dental and Legal Services
  • Mental Health Services
  • Transportation
  • Tattoo/Branding Removal
  • Education/Employment Skills

In addition to case management and the 24-hour hotline, STOP-IT operates a drop-in center in downtown Chicago for female-identified people between the ages of 14 and 29 who have experienced exploitation in the sex trade; co-leads the Cook County Human Trafficking Task Force; and conducts training for professionals serving vulnerable populations.

If you are in need of emergency assistance, please contact our 24-hour hotline at 877-606-3158.
