The U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking is working to end Human Trafficking in the United States through prevention, combating demand, rescuing victims, influencing government policy and providing safe refuge for the restoration of survivors. We are a nonprofit, faith-based organization anointed by God to fight against human trafficking in America with truth and integrity, showing the love of Jesus Christ to all involved. With offices in Tampa, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Austin, we are addressing the national problem, and also doing so with on-the-ground services. Our focus on the prevention of human trafficking in the United States is being accomplished through combating demand in new and innovative ways, raising awareness, educating our youth, disruption of trafficking activities, advocating a consolidation within the industry to maximize efficiencies, and collaborating with organizations who are expert at rescuing abducted youth currently engaged in the sex trade. Our work is also done in conjunction with federal, state and local government officials who sit in a position to influence policy on ending trafficking in America. USIAHT’s Florida Safe Home is one of the first safe homes for boys in the United States dedicated to the care of male victims of sex trafficking under the age of 18. The home offers a trauma-based care approach, developed as a six to nine-month program, but allowing the children to stay as long as necessary for their proper care. Located in an undisclosed location in Central Florida, the Florida Safe Home is designed to serve any biologically born male under 18, no matter where they identify on the gender spectrum. This is important due to projections that up to 50% of trafficked biologically born males in Florida are transgender. Each child has their own bedroom and bathroom in the home, enabling this unique program focus. The TraffickingFree Zone program is a county-wide initiative focused on reducing the demand – the number of buyers – for sex-trafficked victims. County-by-county the TraffickingFree Zone program is implemented in collaboration with community members and leaders, law enforcement, businesses, schools, healthcare organizations, churches and the media. The focus of the program is on arresting and prosecuting sex buyers instead of the victims who are being sold, educating people on sex trafficking and implementing numerous other demand reduction techniques including technology and research components. When these sectors are activated and working in unison for a one-year period, the TraffickingFree Zone community can expect to see a significant decline in demand.
