Project Fight

Freeing individuals gripped by human trafficking

Human Trafficking is a form of modern slavery -- a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to millions of people around the world. The Salvation Army is working alongside other community organizations on the front lines of this battle. Through its Project FIGHT (Freeing Individuals Gripped by Human Trafficking) program, The Salvation Army provides comprehensive case management for survivors of human trafficking found in North Carolina, and works to generate education and awareness about human trafficking in the community. Just recently, through Project FIGHT, we’ve helped house trafficking survivors through our Rapid Rehousing program, as well as working through our partners at Lily Pad Haven.

“In many ways, human trafficking is a hidden problem,” said Deronda Metz, director of social services for The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. “But, as survivors know we are here to help them, we can provide them with shelter, case management services and most importantly, hope that their lives can be rebuilt.”View video below to learn more about the FIGHT against human trafficking:
