The Freedom Collaboration is a working group with the common goal of freeing East Texas youth from commercial sexual exploitation.


One of our strong values is collaboration with trusted partners. Not one organization or agency can begin to tackle this complex problem alone. For The Silent collaborates with juvenile justice, federal and local law enforcement, medical, and other social service providers, ensuring victims receive a range of restorative services and guidance through the legal system. In essence, when we collaborate with best practice agencies, victims receive the excellent continuum of care they deserve and no one falls through the cracks.
