“You can literally save lives. You can bring people off the streets that may have been on their way to death…” —“Theresa,” a sex-trafficked survivor in Catholic Charities Diversion program.
Everyone needs a guardian angel. You can change the life of a sex-trafficked survivor in Phoenix by being on her side. With 86 percent of sex-trafficked survivors never returning to prostitution after completing Catholic Charities’ Diversion program—many young women are finding a new, safe life to pursue their talents and dreams. But they need help getting started on the right foot.
When you join the Stop Sex-Trafficking Team and become a one-time or monthly giver, you’ll help sex trafficked survivors start over by providing for these basic needs.
$15 a month will provide groceries.
$25 a month will provide bus passes, groceries and hygiene supplies.
$50 a month will provide a 31-day bus pass, groceries, hygiene supplies and clothing needs.
$100 a month will provide for traveling, groceries, and clothing needs for job interviews.
By joining the Stop Sex-Trafficking Team, you’ll be joining a community of other men and women taking a stand in Phoenix. You’ll help women like “Sarah” that you saw in the video and other young women caught in slavery to be set free.
Started in 2001, Catholic Charities Diversion Program is one of the most unique programs in the United States as it creates a partnership with the City of Phoenix prosecutor’s office. Instead of sex-trafficked survivors having to do jail time, they are offered the choice of doing 36-hours of self-exploration and education to heal, gain self-esteem, be supported and receive job placement assistance. The City of Phoenix Prosecutor’s Office study cites that 86 percent of survivors going through this program do not return to sex-trafficking.
