We offer services to many clients who are trying to have a normal life after trafficking. 🔻 A recent success story involved the simple task of getting a drivers license. Our case manager provided a practice driving course so that a client could feel ready to take her test. Because this survivor was trafficked at such a YOUNG age, she was not able to do the things that the average teenage gets to learn how to drive. She was nervous about taking this next step, but she went on to pass her test! She was able to get a car so that she could go to work and provide for herself. #faithjusticefreedom #endhumantrafficking Learn more:

State Report Cards: Grading Criminal Record Relief Laws for Survivors of Human Trafficking

Is there anything worse than an "F" on Virginia's report card? Yes, a zero. 👎 We have no place to go but up! #endhumantrafficking Learn more about the work we do to help survivors of human trafficking ➡️ Many states many have attempted to provide relief by giving trafficking victims a path toward having criminal records cleared. Unfortunately, many of the laws don’t work for survivors. We offer detailed report cards for each state, assessing what works and what doesn't in their laws - if they have...

Intervention Team Update ➡️ "As we were getting ready to depart from an illicit massage business one afternoon, our driver’s battery died. At just the time we realized the car battery was dead we looked up to see a potential buyer with his hand on the doorknob of the massage business. ❌ We called him over, asking if he would jump the battery of our car. He agreed and brought his car over. Two of the men on our Buyer Outreach team were able to talk with him while jumping the car. They informed him about trafficking that happens in these kinds of parlors. He said he didn’t know that they were trafficked and was very thankful that we informed him. This man ended up getting in his car and driving away without going in. The team was able to bring awareness to this man and prevent sexual exploitation in this instance. As of February of this year, the buyer outreach team has had the opportunity to talk to 17 people during outings, 14 of those men who were leaving or about to enter illicit massage businesses. Men are given information cards to reach out to a confidential line, and when receptive we pray with them." Learn more: #endhumantrafficking #faithjusticefreedom

Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Charged in Florida Prostitution Investigation

Here at NOVA-HTI our hearts go out to the victims in this case involving New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Sadly, sex and/or labor trafficking takes place in illicit massage businesses (IMB's) all over the United States, including Northern Virginia. It is a multi-billion dollar industry in which women who are looking for new opportunities are trafficked and exploited.

NOVA-HTI is committed to providing much needed services and support to these victims who are true survivors. Do you know how to identify this crime in your own community? Join us for our Justice Summit on April 26 & 27 to learn what is happening and how to fight it. Robert K. Kraft, the owner of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, was charged with two counts of soliciting sex.

PRAISE! We were recently able to assist a client with a financial need thanks to the outpouring of support from our volunteers. 🔻 "I want to thank the people who assisted me in this time of need. I truly felt no hope and that I had no one to turn to, and I haven’t been sleeping or eating. Your assistance has enabled me to take some of the stress off of my mind and has shown me that there are good people out there...In today’s world it’s more important than ever to treat each other with kindness and compassion. And you did just that." ➡️ Assist with some of our organization's tangible needs by checking out our Amazon wish list or donating on our website. #faithjusticefreedom
