About Project FIGHT
The Salvation Army in the Carolinas has been fighting for those impacted by human trafficking since 2011 through Project FIGHT. Through partnerships and relationships with state and local government, law enforcement, and other agencies, we are able to provide comprehensive case management to survivors of human trafficking.
Project FIGHT serves all populations of human trafficking. Our mission is to identify and serve victims and survivors of human trafficking in North & South Carolina.
After meeting the immediate needs of human trafficking survivors and helping them to find stable footing, we help connect them to a network of agencies and services including medical, mental health, legal, housing, and other services they may require. All the while, we are walking beside them helping them along the path to restoration, fighting for them every step of the way.
We provide crisis intervention and comprehensive case management for individuals impacted by human trafficking. Trauma-informed case managers connect individuals to resources including food, shelter, clothing, safety planning, general and mental health services, governmental assistance and immigration specialists.
