Founded in January 2005, Triad Ladder of Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to eradicating the exploitation, sale, and trafficking of persons.
At TLH, we believe there are four steps to ending human trafficking:
- Awareness - Teaching/Training
- Family Justice Center
- Rowan County Response Team
- Triad Rapid Response Team
- Department of Health and Human Services – Rescue and Restore
- NC Coalition Against Human Trafficking
- Salvation Army
Step 1 - Awareness
Educating our communities is key to eradicating human trafficking. For victims to be more successfully identified and rescued, the public must first understand that human trafficking is a crime and happening all around us.
Triad Ladder of Hope utilizes volunteers to organize massive campaigns against trafficking to bring awareness to the public. Also, training and education on how to recognize a victim is available for law enforcement, churches, clubs, organizations, service providers, teachers, students, and anyone else that might encounter a victim of human trafficking (which means pretty much everyone!). We have experienced personnel available to speak to your group on Human Trafficking 101: Training.
