"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our Relo Team's goal is to work with Federal Law Enforcement agencies to safely transport a child or victim from a hostile situation, and to enable them to connect with immediate care as well as a trained advocate to begin walking in freedom. Our team is made up of a former executive protection specialist, mental health professionals, nurses, and educators with experience in serving victims of abuse-related trauma. Sometimes an emergency medical visit to address physical traumas is necessary; other times what is needed is a hot meal, a warm bed, and maybe their first good night’s sleep in a long time.
Often, for the physical and mental welfare of a rescued victim – which we call a “survivor” – we must relocate them geographically to an appropriate placement for long-term care and healing. This is because the threat of violence against them can be very real, but also so that they will have more of a chance to feel safe, away from negative spheres of influence or danger.
