Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DOES THE SEARCH + RESCUE PROGRAM WORK?

In pledging $40 a month, a donor can support rescue operations that find and free victims of human trafficking. As costs and needs vary in each of the countries where we work, a monthly Search & Rescue pledge could go to cover costs like investigators’ transportation, equipment upkeep or related expenses. With more than 1,300 rescues to their credit, our frontline investigators could not operate without the support of Search & Rescue donors.

WHERE DOES THE EXODUS ROAD WORK IN THE WORLD?

The Exodus Road has headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO, and offices in India, Thailand, and Latin America. Because human trafficking is everywhere, we are always evaluating opportunities to expand our reach into different countries. When credible and strategic opportunities arise we engage in a thorough due diligence process.

WHY ARE YOU FOCUSED ON FUELING INTERVENTION WORK TO STRATEGICALLY FIGHT TRAFFICKING?

The Exodus Road was birthed out of a recognition of the deficiencies of intervention efforts around the globe. That deficiency still exists; so, we remain focused on intervention. We believe that when human trafficking practices and networks are disrupted today, we are preventing countless victims from being enslaved tomorrow. This is a strategic, effective, and long-term approach to bringing about positive social change.

WHY DO YOU WORK TO EMPOWER NATIONALS FIRST?

At our core, we believe that human trafficking must be fought from within a culture if it is going to be fought at all; this is the only sustainable and systemic approach. We acknowledge the deep understanding that local law enforcement and governments have of their own country, laws, and human trafficking situation. So, we understand that collaboration with national organizations and individuals is critical for success.

WHAT ABOUT FISCAL TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY?

The Exodus Road is committed to fiscal responsibility and accountability. We are a 501c3 nonprofit corporation in good standing in the state of Colorado. Though not required, we have voluntarily undergone an Independent Financial Audit from the reputable accounting firm, Capin & Crouse, and have passed every year we have completed it.

WHO ARE YOUR UNDERCOVER OPERATIVES?

The Exodus Road considers the safety of its operatives in the field of utmost importance. Because many of the agents live in the same countries where they are investigating, we do not publicly identify them.

The Exodus Road utilizes both Western volunteer operatives, who often come from military or law enforcement backgrounds, as well as a team of employed national investigators. Currently, most are male, but we do have several female operatives as well. Because of security, most active operatives maintain secure identities. All operatives must pass an extensive vetting process, which includes a psychological evaluation and field training. 

WHAT AFTERCARE IS THE EXODUS ROAD INVOLVED IN?

True deliverance does not end with rescue, but must include quality restorative care for the victims. Because our focus is intervention, we are limited in what types of services we offer survivors, especially when government protocol is in place. While countries vary greatly in what level of care they offer survivors after a raid (both government and private), we have learned that quality aftercare remains a critical element — one that is typically lacking resources and accessibility.

 

In an effort to ensure better survivor care, we offer three solutions.

  1.  We employ national social workers to follow and advocate for survivors through the legal and post-raid process, even if those survivors are placed in government care.
  2.  We grant funds to underfunded partners specializing in after care projects to encourage better survivor services. We fund specific projects to help survivors rescued by The Exodus Road, as well as survivors in the care of trusted partners or government agencies. These projects have included: educational fees, repatriation fees, medical and counseling fees, debt repayment, emergency relief for an after care shelter, and job skills classes, to name a few.
