We envision a world where no person is enslaved and every person is free.
Gray Haven works on the frontline advocating for survivors and meeting their needs. We team up and partner with organizations and government agencies to lower barriers to freedom. We are not in this alone and believe that the movement to eliminate human trafficking from our communities and from the world will take a collaborative approach.
Here are three main areas of focus for us. This is our method to playing our part in the movement.
Human trafficking is a source of oppression, manipulation, and trauma. The foundation of healing for those affected by this experience begins through the safety of healthy, equality based relationships.
We provide unconditional support as a survivor begins the journey of healing. We walk alongside each survivor as they navigate the complexity of life and move toward independence by
nurturing resilience, self-determination, and confidence.
We disrupt the flow of human trafficking by working with first responders and conducting outreach to vulnerable populations. By working alongside a diverse range of organizations we are able to ensure victims are identified and referred for survivor care in Richmond or elsewhere.
We train, advise, and collaborate with government agencies, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, non-profit organizations, and the faith community to deliver trainings that go beyond what human trafficking is to how we can address it and how to interact with survivors. Ultimately, we believe combating human trafficking does not rest on one organization, but on an entire community working toward that goal.
