Rescue America empowers survivors of sexual exploitation to exit the sex trade via its 24/7 hotline network and the Rescue America Emergency Assessment (RAEA) Program. Our program combo bridges the gap between outreach advocacy and long-term restoration, helping to streamline the flow of survivor services, activate and mobilize the community, and unify the local and national anti-sex trafficking landscape. To accomplish our mission, we “stay in our lane” and adhere to our core competencies of response, rescue, assessment, stabilization, and continued care placement.
The values of Rescue America are:
Seek & Honor God’s Voice ● Cultivate Felt Safety ● Empower Freedom
Pursue Peace and Healthy Relationships ● Celebrate BIG
In 2014, we launched Houston’s first 24/7 survivor hotline to provide immediate response and rescue for those wanting freedom from commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. From outreach to exit — distributing and responding to the hotline is one of the most powerful and effective ways to offer hope in the form of safe transport, shelter, and program support to survivors across the nation who are ready and able to exit the sex trade.
To better support the healing journeys of survivors, we focus our efforts on a highly therapeutic, holistic 60-day “reset” known as the RAEA (Rescue America Emergency Assessment) Program. The RAEA Program empowers survivors to continue healing and navigate critical life choices during, and maintain them beyond the eight week program. We seek to reduce survivor relapse by providing the immediate assessment and stabilization support essential to facilitate the most appropriate placement for each survivor’s long-term care.
The Mobilization Manager reflects the heart and embodies the mission of Rescue America efforts to the local community. The primary goals of the Mobilization Manager are to effectively communicate the strategic frontline interventions we provide in the territory — 24/7 hotline or hotline plus the RAEA Program, as well as recruit, onboard and equip volunteers to support local operations with excellence, empowering survivors to safely exit exploitative circumstances.
Mobilization Managers recognize the intrinsic value of each volunteer role required to accomplish an exit and support each survivor’s healing journey, as well as the necessity of thorough training and accurate documentation of the volunteer experience, to ensure appropriate volunteer placement, retention, and the integrous provision of services.
The Mobilization Manager is primarily responsible for recruiting, equipping, and helping to manage and retain volunteers, which may include Phone Bank volunteers, Hotline Advocates, Exit Team members, Restoration Drivers and New Life Mentors. It is the responsibility of the Mobilization Manager to help ensure the accurate and thorough collection and documentation of every volunteer and volunteer experience in the appropriate software platform.
As a gate-keeper and frontline service provider, the Mobilization Manager will communicate volunteer ideas, needs, questions, and concerns to the Director of Hotline & Advocacy or Vice President. The Mobilization Manager will faithfully steward all Rescue America policies and procedures. The Mobilization Manager's role is not one of a therapeutic provider.
The Mobilization Manager is a full-time W2 employee, will maintain agreed upon office hours and adhere to all policies outlined in the Employee Handbook, including submitting timely expense reports. The Mobilization Manager will be paid on a salary basis, offered healthcare sharing coverage, and access to other holistic care benefits including therapy and Spiritual Exchange. Mileage and cell phone expenses are eligible for reimbursement per the Rescue America Expense Reimbursement Policy.The Mobilization Manager will be under the direct supervision of, and provide weekly volunteer reports to the Director of Hotline & Advocacy or Vice President.
Due to the intense nature of survivor advocacy, it is highly encouraged that the full-time Mobilization Manager take a paid quarterly one-week vacation. Likewise, the Mobilization Manager will also commit to a self-care plan (I.e. spiritual development, journaling, rest, exercise, healthy diet etc.) This plan will be presented to her or his direct report upon acceptance of the role who will be entrusted with reminding the Mobilization Manager to engage in her self-care plan. All program therapies will be made available to the Mobilization Manager for her own self-care and growth, as approved by the Director of Hotline & Advocacy or Vice President.
