Motels are a hotspot for human trafficking and we fight trafficking in the DFW area by equipping motels with the tools they need to identify victims and offer guests a way to get help if in an unsafe situation.
In many cases, the only time a victim is alone is when she is in the bathroom. Therefore, we offer motels two different awareness materials to place in each bathroom: soaps and mirror stickers with the National Human Trafficking Hotline information. We also provide motel owners with a current missing children’s report. In 2014, approximately 1,600 runaway children in DFW were trafficked. Our goal is that motel owners would work with us to identify and report missing children.
Join our JUSTICE TEAM or FREEDOM TEAM to help distribute this material and educate owners on how they can be a part of fighting trafficking. The minimum commitment is for 3 months and you will go out once a month on a Saturday morning.
If you are not from the DFW but would like to make a difference in your community, we have everything you need to start your own Motel Outreach. We would love to connect with you and help you get started. Check it out here >> and feel free to email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
