Project Freedom was formed by key business leaders in the Carolinas to address a critical unmet needs of children and youth rescued from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation, including young mothers. These children are often unable to return home and need a safe place to stabilize and begin healing. Effective residential care and treatment solutions must be created to address the medical, therapeutic and emotional needs of these young survivors while continuing their education. This level of care is not currently available in the Carolinas. Project Freedom exists to fund a new model of care created by experts in the field that gives each child the opportunity to heal in a healthy environment.
Project Freedom’s first goal is to fund new residential facilities for children and youth in the Carolinas, including young mothers with children. With your support, we will raise $6,000,000 to invest in new residential care models created by a multi-disciplinary team of experts in mental health, social services, law enforcement, education and child advocacy.
In addition, Project Freedom will raise funds for strategic prevention and demand reduction initiatives in an effort to reduce child victimization.
