Rescue Houston

Rescue America was set in motion with the discovery that millions of women, children, and men are sexually enslaved in the world today, with thousands located right here in the U.S. As we grew more aware of the complex issue of sex trafficking, we asked the question that you may have asked yourself, “Where do we even begin?” After seventeen months of extensive research, it was confirmed there was a gaping hole in the anti-sex trafficking landscape in Houston, and much of America. Simply stated, there was a need to separate victims from victimizers and set them safely on a path of healing and restoration.

In 2014, our first location, Rescue Houston was launched. A 24/7 hotline providing immediate response and rescue for victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. In 2018 we launched our emergency assessment program, holistly addressing the most common variables that cause a victim to return to the life again and again.

We know our role in anti-trafficking landscape and recognize that it takes each one of us working side by side to free those in bondage and abolish sex slavery in America. Please join us today as a strategic partner, volunteer or financial partner to provide immediate rescue and stabilization to victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.
