The Salvation Army is dedicated to fighting Human Trafficking and serving our impacted neighbors.
Despite common belief, sex trafficking is not just a third-world problem. In fact, right now, an estimated 244,000 to 350,000 children are being emotionally and physically abused through the sex trade in the United States.
Despite numerous laws designed to protect children from this abuse, sex trafficking continues to flourish in the U.S. The Salvation Army has been actively involved in partnering with authorities across the Chicagoland area to combat the sex trade, rescue its victims and provide them with treatment and shelter.
