DELIVERING

through community

Awareness

Through prevention, survivor care, and community transformation programs — we work to end sex trafficking and exploitation by empowering the voices of vulnerable and exploited youth.

Dignity

We believe in giving honor and respect to every client to whom we provide services. We do not force help upon them. We believe that they have the right and liberty to choose what is best for them as we come alongside to help guide them into healthy and holistic choices.

Hope Over Fear

We believe that hope is more powerful than fear. From the language we use in trainings to the imagery we display on our website, we want to paint a picture of HOPE. We believe that a message of hope creates a healthier response than a message of fear.


Never Re-Exploit

The privacy and confidentiality of each girl is held to the upmost importance. We will not reveal underage survivors’ identities, real names, or identifying details that could put their privacy and safety in jeopardy. We understand it is her right to decide if, when, and how she will tell her story after giving informed consent.


Do Not Sensationalize

We must tell the true narrative of commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking. We believe that promoting a “Hollywood” version of trafficking using extreme or fringe stories for shock factor is actually more harmful than helpful in raising awareness. If our communities believe trafficking looks like the sensationalized stories, they will miss the reality of what’s actually happening all around them.

Quality Over Quantity

We focus on the individual lives of at-risk and exploited girls and will not sacrifice quality education and individualized survivor care in order to boost our numbers.

Partnership

We are not the end-all. We do not want to re-invent the wheel by creating programs or services other agencies already provide. No one organization can begin to tackle the multifaceted needs of survivors and complexities of this issue. We partner with trusted best practice agencies and service providers to develop a full continuum of care for survivors.

WHAT THEY'RE

SAYING

“The I HAVE A VOICE course has been a tremendous success for us and vital to our community due to such limited resources for agencies who work with at-risk teenagers. For the Silent is critical to our success in detecting and serving young girls in Smith County that are at risk of exploitation and we look forward to a continued partnership with them.”
