Our Beliefs

Our Statement of Identity

We are broken people loving & serving broken people.

Our Vision

To see God raise up an army of humble servants who understand that all people are made in the image of God and therefore have inherent value, worth, and dignity. These servants would know that the sexual exploitation and the buying and selling of human beings is on all levels an abomination to The Holy God who created them. By their thoughts, words, and deeds, they would be committed to bringing the redemptive story of God as found in His Word to any and all who would be impacted by the Human Trafficking industry.

Our Mission

To rescue, restore, and resource women and children from the bondage of human trafficking and addiction.

Our Strategy – Rescue | Restore | Recognize | Resource

Rescue through survivor-informed interventions. Restore through survivor-informed curriculum and relational wraparound support. Educate the community to Recognize Human Trafficking and Resource survivors with jobs through NAHT's Sweet Daisy social enterprise.

Our Values – Humble | Simple | Hopeful

Humbly Kingdom-minded, Simply Christ-focused, with Holy Spirit-empowered Hope!

Our Statement of Belief

All roads of justice and healing lead to Jesus.

Our Motto

This is a marathon not a sprint. We pace ourselves by waiting on The Commander of the army! (Joshua 5:13-15)

The "Inspire Hope" Movement

Helping victims of human trafficking become survivors and ultimately, thrivers.

Rescued women bring tremendous value to the local workforce and economy

Women rescued from human trafficking have gained valuable life skills on the streets. NAHT provides victims with job resources and training that help translate these into occupational skills that help them gain financial independence and contribute to the success of businesses in our community.
