Mission Statement

Our mission is to support male survivors’ journey out of the sex trade into freedom and fullness of life, and to fight exploitation worldwide for all mankind.

Description

Trafficking and exploitation impact ALL people, but many think it only affects females. However, a nationwide study found 36% of those involved in the sex trade were men and boys. Still, of the 800+ organizations working against trafficking in the U.S., fewer than 2% support male-identifying clients. Male victims and survivors are often overlooked, misunderstood, stereotyped, ignored, and left without support. Emmaus seeks to narrow that gap in services, empower male survivors and amplify their voices, and foster a movement to fight trafficking and exploitation for ALL people.
