- Revitalize organizations that are trying to do too much alone. A partnership can help to bolster efforts around Anti-Trafficking. For organizations that have worked too long in a hose, the addition of other hands to the task can be a tremendous source of new energy and restored hope.
- Intervention. We will share our experience and resource’s in order to effectively intervene, work with law enforcement, establish a common denominator in order to assist the transformation of the victim’s life and the restoration of the family.
- Prevention.We all know that prevention is the cure however, service providers are in reactive mode and don’t know how to get in front of this epidemic without putting victims at further risk.With limited funding, manpower, and resources we tend do help who is in front of us.We will show you how to maximize and expand what’s in your hand while preventing other children from being trafficked.
- Supportive Services. Real change usually takes place over a period of time through the process of individuals gaining trust, sharing ideas, and getting past their biases in order to understand the real issues underlying community needs. Traffickers infiltrate gaps.It is time we fill the gaps with and real adhesive that can’t be pulled apart, The Antidote.
