Investing In Hope

Join us as we raise money to build Alabama’s only therapeutic crisis center dedicated to child victims of human trafficking.

Do you know the signs of human trafficking?
Knowing what to look for can save someone’s life.

Blanket Fort Hope Objectives

We are building Alabama’s only Crisis Center for Child Victims.

We are in the process of building a Crisis Center, which will provide short-term housing for child victims. They will be stabilized by receiving trauma-informed care, medical care, legal resources, love from our staff, and most importantly, they will hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are legal advocates.

We work directly with representatives
to improve and make better use of Alabama law and policies to fight human trafficking in our state. We have been invited to speak on various bills and will continue to be a voice for the voiceless.

.

We are educators.

We have conducted over 300 trainings totaling over 3,000 individuals receiving training on human trafficking, including: lawyers, judges, healthcare professionals, churches, schools, and a host of other types of professionals.

We are trainers.

The Foster Care Initiative is a curriculum we developed specifically for foster parents to help them identify the signs of a trafficked child and provide them the best care possible.

We are committed to

The foundation of Jesus Christ


Prioritizing people and children


Respect for our communities


Responsible stewardship of donations and resources

Pursuing community programs


Limiting administrative expenses


Humility in our successes and honesty in our short comings

Indicators Of Human Trafficking

Recognizing key indicators of human trafficking is the first step in identifying victims and can help save a life.

  • Does the person appear disconnected from family, friends, community organizations, or houses of worship?
  • Has a child stopped attending school?
  • Has the person had a sudden or dramatic change in behavior?
  • Is a juvenile engaged in commercial sex acts?
  • Is the person disoriented or confused, or showing signs of mental or physical abuse?
  • Does the person have bruises in various stages of healing?
  • Is the person fearful, timid, or submissive?
  • Does the person show signs of having been denied food, water, sleep, or medical care?
  • Is the person often in the company of someone to whom he or she defers? Or someone who seems to be in control of the situation, e.g., where they go or who they talk to?
  • Does the person appear to be coached on what to say?
  • Is the person living in unsuitable conditions?
  • Does the person lack personal possessions and appear not to have a stable living situation?
  • Does the person have freedom of movement? Can the person freely leave where they live? Are there unreasonable security measures?
  • Not all indicators listed above are present in every human trafficking situation, and the presence or absence of any of the indicators is not necessarily proof of human trafficking.
