Every dollar helps. Every dollar heals. Join the community of volunteers and supporters who promote healing of human trafficking survivors and strategically confront slavery in our state through End Slavery Tennessee’s programs of training, specialized comprehensive aftercare and prevention. Your donations will help move 120 survivors this year up the slow, hard, but ultimately life-changing path to recovery. You also help save today’s vulnerable youth from falling for the traffickers’ traps in the first place. The need is clear. TBI Director Mark Gwynn says the numbers will continue to increase for the foreseeable future. End Slavery Tennessee is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit recognized by the IRS making your donations tax deductible.

What Your Donations Do
- Provide for survivor needs from the immediate and urgent to long term: Safe housing, transportation, food, clothing, medical assessment and care, regular specialized therapy, job skills and search assistance, GED/college prep etc. as well as the staff who become their trusted support team and who work side by side with survivors to set and meet individual goals. Included in this category are the costs of running our two safe houses which provide a six month stabilization period for new survivors.
- Equip prevention groups working with vulnerable populations of youth to prevent them falling prey to trafficker's traps.
- Pay Intervention Specialists (survivors well along the path to recovery) to mentor new survivors, work with especially vulnerable youth and act as spokespersons for legislators, media and other change makers.
- Train professionals to identify and get appropriate help for victims they encounter.
- Supply materials to help ordinary citizens identify and get help for trafficked persons in their neighborhoods and report trafficking activity to law enforcement.
- Develop tools to bring about systemic change in our state. Goals for the next three years include creation of a video component in the TBI training of all law enforcement in the state, development of a best practices manual, a universal assessment tool and eventually a app version of the latter and participation in creating and providing services for a specialized trafficking court.
