Selah Freedom brings Awareness and Education to the community and organizations through their speakers bureau team, CSEC (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children) 101 Course, law enforcement training, Global Training & Organizational Development - over 20,000 people annually! The My Life, My Choice Prevention Programming for teen girls ages 12-17 years old, empowers them with the tools they need to avoid being manipulated by a pimp. This survivor-written, survivor-led curriculum has a 90% success rate of preventing girls from being commercially sold. Our Outreach Program is active in the jail system and on the street and provides support groups, case management, and referral services to women currently in "the life". Selah Freedom has partnered with law enforcement and the State Attorney's Office to launch the TYLA Program, a diversionary program for sex trafficking survivors in the legal system. We provide Residential Programming for survivors of sex trafficking and education, that includes a personalized educational plan, job placement, trauma therapy, life skills, medical and legal assistance, and holistic restorative care.
As we bring light into the darkness of sex trafficking, we see victims transformed into survivors!
Selah Freedom actively confronts the issue of sex trafficking and is being upheld as the statewide model for how to effectively bring solutions to survivors of sex trafficking & exploitation. Selah is a Hebrew word which means to pause, rest, and reflect. We give survivors a chance to do just that. Women in our programs have an opportunity to dream again; to discover who it is they were created to be.
