"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 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.
