Breaking the Chains

BTC is located in California’s Central San Joaquin Valley. They work with local, state, and federal law-enforcement agencies to provide rescue, relocation, restorative, and residential services to victims of human trafficking.

The BTC campus is a remarkable example of our community’s dedication to help juvenile and adult victims of human trafficking. BTC is equipped with a beautiful safe house that provides long term shelter to 6 survivors. In addition, they also have our newly opened trauma treatment center that is equipped with an executive office, reception area, counseling offices, a large class room/recreation area, childcare center, and a gym.

This in combination with a stellar trauma informed curriculum and an army of volunteers, has allowed them to also offer trauma informed services on a daily basis to more than 42 survivors through their Non-Residential service program. In all they provide direct trauma informed services to 48 survivors and their family’s everyday. It has been amazing to see the vision that was launched just three years prior come to life in such a short period of time.
