About The Organization
UnBound was founded with the mission of collaborating with local community and service providers to fight human trafficking. UnBound Seattle addresses human trafficking through prevention, community education, and survivor advocacy.
Prevention - A focus of UnBound Seattle is to engage with at-risk youth, build relationships, and provide prevention curriculum in order to prevent vulnerable populations from being exploited.
Community Education - UnBound is committed to raising awareness about sex trafficking and equipping local groups to fight sex trafficking in their own spheres through presentations on the realities of human trafficking, organizing community prayer nights, and community education events.
Survivor Advocacy - On average, there are less than 15 shelter beds a night dedicated to survivors of sex trafficking. The overwhelming majority (89%) of women in “the life” want to leave but have no other options for survival (Farley, 2003).
In May of 2015, UnBound opened the Hope House to help fill this need and provide hope and a future for survivors of sex trafficking. The Hope House is a long-term aftercare home for up to four women who desire support and accountability as they do the hard work of healing. The Hope House provides shelter, mental health counseling, support, and access to medical care, education, job training, and other needs for survivors for up to two years. We believe the power of Jesus and a supportive, safe environment allows women to heal from the impacts of trauma and abuse and build a new future.
