IDENTIFY

 

IDENTIFICATION IS

WHERE OUR WORK BEGINS

 
 

Identification is our first step in helping a potential victim of sex trafficking, and it opens the door to all other services that Restore offers. This highly specialized technique involves interviewing a client to assess whether she meets the federal criteria for a “severe victim of trafficking.”

 
 

 

For the women we have the chance to identify, 80% are trafficked or have red flags for trafficking.

How do women find Restore?

Restore receives referrals from all over the country for potential victims of trafficking. Our referral sources continue to increase as Restore's network grows and expertise sharpens.

Referral Sources in 2017 - 40% Court System, 28% NGOs, 24% Law Enforcement, 8% Self or Peer-to-Peer
 
 
 

Survivors working with Restore have reported being trafficked in 27 states or districts.

Bringing VICTIMS of SEX trafficking out of the shadows 

Restore is working to solve the problem of how to effectively identify a population that is difficult to bring out of the shadows. Trauma, shame, and documentation status make it challenging for victims to come forward and identify as survivors of trafficking.

 
 
 

We refuse to leave behind women who are trafficked.
