Meet Our Partners
The Joseph Project
The Joseph Project is a nonprofit organization that connects human trafficking survivors with pro bono legal services. Trafficking survivors often face legal obstacles that arise from their exploitative circumstances, including criminal record impediments, family law obstacles, and immigration challenges. Yet, these survivors do not have the knowledge or the financial means to secure skilled legal representation. Known as the Justice Gap, this inability to secure legal assistance often impedes survivors from moving toward a better future. Closing the Justice Gap for trafficking survivors requires the creation of a broad network of Legal First Responders – an army of attorneys who are committed and equipped to service their legal needs at no cost. The Joseph Project exists to close the Justice Gap for human trafficking survivors by assembling a national network of Legal First Responders to service their legal needs on a pro bono basis.
Hope Against Trafficking
Hope Against Trafficking is a 24-month residential program that provides restorative housing and comprehensive services focused on physical, mental, emotional and economic transformation. This dedicated housing and programming are committed to serving adult female survivors of sex and labor trafficking induced by threat, force and/or coercion.
The Michigan Abolitionist Project
The Michigan Abolitionist Project (MAP) is “Growing the movement of people and organizations working to prevent and end human trafficking in Michigan and beyond”. We focus on raising awareness and mobilizing communities to take action, including the restoration of hope and dignity to the survivors of modern slavery. Over the last eight years, MAP has been able to galvanize dozens of professionals and service providers from all sectors – law enforcement, healthcare, mental health providers, non-profits, churches, and concerned citizens – in a working and ongoing effort to create a more unified approach to address and respond to the perils of human trafficking in our state.
All Worthy of Love
All Worthy of Love is a justice focused non-profit that reaches out to men and women enslaved by street-prostitution. Our mission is to restore broken dwellings, based on the teachings of Isaiah 58. We work in a three stranded cord; prevention, rescue, and restoration. We prevent sex trafficking through awareness. We rescue victims of trafficking through weekly outreach. We restore victims of trafficking through partnerships with local organizations that offer safe housing and restorative care. We believe all are worthy of love.
