Meet Our Partners
Unshackled is a group of passionate “freedom fighters”. Our goal is to raise awareness of human trafficking that is occurring around the world and in our own backyards. We seek to be a voice for those whose voices have been robbed. We collaborate with other anti-human trafficking organizations to offer educational and hands-on engagement opportunities for those in Metro Detroit.
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. We help 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.
The Joseph Project
The Joseph Project is a non-profit organization that connects human trafficking survivors with pro bono legal services. Often trafficking survivors face legal obstacles that arise from the circumstances of their exploitation, but they do not have the knowledge or the financial means to secure skilled legal representation. The Joseph Project exists to create a network of Legal First Responders to service survivors’ 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.
