Restore NYC exists to end sex trafficking in New York and restore the well-being and independence of foreign-national survivors.

Since 2009, we have pioneered innovative housing and economic-empowerment solutions that give survivors access to a safe home and a safe job—the things that our data tell us make freedom real.

 
 
 
 

WHO WE ARE

 
 
IMG_3799.jpg
 

We are survivor centered.

“She” will always drive our approach. Our agenda, our outcomes, and donor influence always come after the survivor.

We do not turn anyone away, and our response time for crisis is within 24 hours.

The staffing-agency cooperative we help operate is worker-owned and provides survivors with options, versus traditional cooperatives that focus on one industry.

We are effective and impact driven.

We’ve been methodical in finding the solutions to trafficking.

We measure our effectiveness using the acronym IF-WE: identification, freedom, well-being, and engagement. Our rigorous data have made us a leader in the field.

We are innovative and entrepreneurial problem solvers.

Our entrepreneurial spirit, paired with our commitment to survivors, has led to innovative thinking around how we can do effective work.

We opened the first safehome on the East Coast dedicated to immigrant survivors of sex trafficking. Our Economic Empowerment program is the only one of its kind for survivors of trafficking. And, we launched one of the nation’s first and only worker-owned cooperatives for foreign-national survivors of trafficking.

We are influencing and shaping a rapidly evolving field.

As we sharpen our strategies, we share.

There are nearly 100 nonprofits across the U.S. with a primary mission to serve survivors of trafficking. In 2018, the federal government distinguished Restore NYC as one of the few to receive Department of Justice grants for both housing and economic empowerment.

We’ve trained over 600 organizations across the nation, including law-enforcement agencies, other service providers, and hospitals.

We are motivated by our Christian values.

Modern-day slavery has no place in God’s plan.

We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ. We see the face of God in survivors, and we see this work as a privilege.

In this cultural moment, the world is looking for a response to the brokenness around sexual exploitation and gender-based violence. As an effective Christian organization in this space, we’re positioned to make the Gospel a leading voice at this time.
