There are many barriers that stand in the way of victims reaching out for support: the belief that no options are available, experience of stigma and shame in mainstream social services, lack of a trusted support person, control and psychological coercion by a trafficker, and substance use to name a few.
This solution will address these barriers by putting the power back into the hands of victims and survivors and provide an intelligent, interactive, and secure bridge to service providers that offer programs and resources to match their specific needs.
