Want to learn more about Call to Freedom?Have lunch on us!Held monthly at the Sioux Falls Ministry Center (225 E. 11th St.),our luncheons are informal and designed to give you an overview of our work. Human Trafficking - The ProblemHuman trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world's fastest growing criminal industry, it affects every nation across the globe. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern-day slavery.There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history, with an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe. Men, women, and children are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will. Navigating a healthy path for victimsCall to Freedom provides supportive services for victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. By creating a strong network of frontline providers who offer safe housing, mental health counseling, medical assistance, chemical dependency, transportation and other supportive services. The scope of the problem demands coordinated, unified efforts among both the government and nongovernment sectors, as well as the local communities.In addition, effective counter-trafficking work must collaborate across multiple areas of focus and expertise. We are convinced that no one organization has all the answers, all the resources, and all the factors necessary to significantly combat slavery.We need each other, and it’s this value that drives the heart of our work: collaboration.
