About Safe House Project

Did you know hundreds of thousands of American children are sex trafficked annually, with only 1% of the victims identified? Safe House Project has the audacious belief that eradication of child trafficking is possible through the power of unity, compassion, and collective action. Their mission is to increase survivor identification beyond one percent through education, provide emergency services and placement to all survivors, and ensure every survivor can access quality, safe housing and holistic care.

Safe House Project recognizes the crucial role that in-home service providers can play and offers free, industry-focused training to empower these professionals to be vigilant and proactive in spotting signs of human trafficking. Pest management professionals, who often access various homes and properties, are trained to identify suspicious situations and know the proper steps to report them. This training transforms everyday service providers into the eyes and ears of our communities, significantly enhancing the efforts to identify and rescue trafficking survivors.
