Please consider joining our team by supporting us monthly so we can together fulfill God's mission to bring healing and restoration to those abused & exploited through human trafficking.
FREE International has a collaborative vision. We partner and collaborate with organizations across the country. No one organization has the lone power to end the tragedy that is human trafficking; but together, working with communities through partnerships on all levels of society, we can maximize our effectiveness towards ending this issue. Partnership with FREE International takes many forms including facilitating outreaches, one-time trainings, awareness campaigns, as well as in-depth, ongoing, working relationships. The goal is to bring organizations to the table around this issue and facilitate their involvement to the degree that they are able.
