Bridge to Freedom Foundation was founded in December 2008 to bridge gaps in information and services that hinder the growth of survivors of modern slavery. BTFF accomplishes this through research, program development and evaluations, services, and linking the for-profit, academic, and public worlds to the anti-slavery movement. Rather than provide duplicate services, BTFF prides itself on working with those in the anti-slavery movement to enhance and bridge gaps in next-step programs for survivors. BTFF's unique and individual focus seeks to move survivors past the point of survival and into a place where they can thrive.BTFF seeks to cooperate with other organizations with similar goals and to avoid duplication. By linking survivors with appropriate resources and services, BTFF helps survivors move into a situation for which they can thrive. BTFF, through targeted and unique programs, combined with its links to the corporate and community worlds, furthers the personal and professional development of survivors of modern slavery. This includes support to develop self confidence, interviewing skills and language training.
Bridge to Freedom Foundation's mission is to ensure that survivors of modern day slavery are able to build the skills and resources needed to escape the cycle of modern slavery and abuse while attaining and achieving lives they choose. BTFF strives to accomplish this through targeted and unique evidence-based programs.
