Free International is a nonprofit organization working to end human trafficking in the United States. Yes, in the States. Human trafficking, sex trafficing, and slavery aren’t confined to third world countries. It’s going on right here in our backyard. Free International works to Find, Restore, Embrace, and Empower those who are stuck in Human Trafficking through the love of Jesus Christ. The biggest way Free International is doing this is through Mobile Units, which are essentially trailers, where teams can work to free individuals quickly, locally, and efficiently.

INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION (IJM)
Similar to Free International, International Justice Mission (IJM) works to end Human Trafficking. While the other nonprofit is primarily state-side, IJM is a global organization that partners with local justice systems to end violence against people living in poverty. Their mission is to end slavery in our lifetime by rescuing and restoring victims, by bringing criminals to justice, and by strengthening justice systems. They are currently partnered with local authorities in 24 program offices in 14 countries to combat slavery, violence against women and children, and police abuse of power against people who are poor. Every day, teams go into the worst places to bring freedom and hope to individuals caught in slavery. To see more about International Justice Mission, visit their website at: www.ijm.org.

Compassion International is a nonprofit organization that is committed to helping children flourish. They do this through partnering with a local church and a caring sponsor. From this interaction a child is able to discover his or her true value. Compassion impacts children, families, and communities by providing love, education, supplements, health care, christ-centered guidance, and recreational activities. The most-popular form this organization operates through is the monthly sponsorship of a child. However, donations given directly to Compassion International are used to meet critical needs, help a specific cause, support mothers and children, and develop future leaders.
