We are all wired for connection; connection fosters healing. Relationships often get people into human trafficking, and we believe relationships can keep people out. Survivor community can reduce recidivism by decreasing loneliness and isolation, thereby minimizing risk. TFP believes that exposing our participants to the joy life has to offer is not only a healing, but necessary, part of recovering from trauma. Our participants work tirelessly, managing their trauma symptoms, sustaining employment, maintaining their sobriety and rebuilding their lives. This can make recovery feel daunting, rather than hopeful. By providing the structure for joy building activities, TFP renews participant’s hope that their new life is not only possible to sustain, but worth it.
