Breaking the Cycle of Re-Trafficking
Most available services and organizations targeting sex-trafficking in Nevada are focused on the needed awareness, outreach, and rehabilitation. However, little to no attention has been placed on reintegration as a primary focus for individuals, both trafficked and non-trafficked.
For many survivors who have completed a rehabilitation program, moving to a homeless shelter or returning to the streets are their only options.
According to the International Organization of Migration, up to 80% of rescued women in Asia and Eastern Europe end up being re-trafficked. Here in the United States we know that re-trafficking and re-victimization is an existing problem. The US Department of State’s Trafficking Persons report cites one of the reasons for the high likelihood of retrafficking is the lack of long-term care. Sadly, the saying goes, ‘it takes seven attempts for a victim to completely leave their old Life’.
To bridge this gap, True ID has pioneered the first mentorship & reintegration ministry in Southern Nevada for these individuals to increase their chances of success. True ID partners with safe-houses, recovery homes, and other community organizations to provide the support needed to assistance those survivors reintegrate into the community and to prevent the vulnerable individuals being re-trafficked or ever entering the sex-industry with greater success.
