Building the Bridge to Freedom
We Never Give Up On Survivors
Selah Freedom provides outreach on the streets and in the jails through our sex trade support group, case management and resources for survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation. Selah Freedom partners with local law enforcement as the first point of contact for individuals identified as trafficking victims or at high risk of being recruited into trafficking. We are also proud to partner with the FBI, the United States Attorney's Office, multiple Human Trafficking Task Forces and more, to reach survivors and bring them life-saving solutions.
Survivors who are still "in the life" are able to attend weekly groups and receive the resources they need, as well as build a trusting relationship with Selah Freedom. Once an individual is ready to step into freedom, Selah Freedom brings them into a place of safety and restoration.
Selah Freedom is proud to employ the deeply effective TYLA (Turn Your Life Around) Program, developed in 2014 as one of the first of its kind in the country. TYLA is a deeply effective approach to prostitution diversion Program. It incorporates outreach, strong collaboration with community organizations, the judicial system, State Attorney's Office and a re-directed law enforcement philosophy. Through the TYLA Program, survivors are supported by Selah Freedom's expert Outreach team during judicial proceedings and are eligible to have all prostitution-relation arrests expunged from their record. "After a few years [of partnering with Selah Freedom], prostitution dropped by 40% and is down 90% as of 2019," Deputy Chief Pat Robinson, Sarasota Police Department.
