To PROMOTE HEALING OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING SURVIVORS:
End Slavery Tennessee provides victims and their advocates a single point of contact to long term, comprehensive, specialized, trauma-informed aftercare for survivors.
We provide in-house services and connect to community service providers, using the tools and people best equipped to restore victims to wholeness. Requests for aid can come from federal, state and local law enforcement, the District Attorney's office, the courts, the Dept. of Children's Services, social workers, medical professionals, classmates, teachers, observant citizens, concerned family members and victims themselves .
For survivors age 18 and up, we have all-in-one safe housing that can accommodate up to 8 survivors full-time, and another 4 survivors temporarily. Full-time residents stay up to a year while we focus together on healing and individualized plans for next steps.
The path to wholeness is long and complex. Types of aid vary with each case. Examples include:
Safe shelter, both short and long term
Medical assessment and care
Mental health assessment and care
Treatment for addiction
Support groups of many kinds
Transportation to services
Phone (for safety)
Tattoo ("tag") removal
Life skills training
Job skills and job search
Identification, SSN, etc.
Literacy and GED tutoring
Opportunities to develop new skills, meet new goals
Intangibles: Respect, empowerment, options, support, love, acceptance, affirmation of skills and strengths.
We partner with Branded Collective (formerly T-615) who provide jobs and job training for some survivors. This provides them work experience and references as well as job skills development.
Our services are available to all human trafficking survivors in Middle Tennessee: Adults and minors; foreign nationals and US citizens; victims of labor, service or sex trafficking.
