Welcome to The Gray Haven Project! We exist to rewrite the tragedy of human trafficking and our mission is to provide hope and restoration to survivors of human trafficking in Central Virginia.
As The Gray Haven Project we believe in doing two things to see modern day slavery abolished: hope for survivors and community mobilization. We believe that everyone has a part to play in this story with us. To those of you that are joining this movement we welcome you. We hope that here you’ll find more than information about what we do.
We hope that you’ll learn how you can join us in rewriting the tragedy.
Our story is a lot like yours, unfolding as we speak. As our story progresses over the coming years we hope you will be there with us, changing, dreaming, hoping, and seeing lives that were once being torn apart by tragedy are now experiencing hope in the context of a safe and loving environment.
Traffickers frequently target vulnerable people and use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the commercial sex industry.
Beyond the numbers, articles, and studies we were moved by the stories of young girls being forced or coerced into a life of prostitution and violence. It hit us harder than anything we had seen and wanted to do something.
To those of you that are joining this movement we welcome you. We hope that here you’ll find more than information about what we do. We hope that you’ll learn how you can join us in rewriting the tragedy.
