Amirah, Inc. offers long term care for women survivors of sex trafficking

Amirah, Inc. is a multi-faceted aftercare organization for women who have survived sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, and prostitution. Their mission to provide a refuge for those seeking to break free from exploitation and heal in community on their journey toward lasting hope. They offer long-term, trauma-informed residential care in safe homes, educational programs for communities, and outreach programs in prisons and jails for incarcerated victims.

What They Do

Every year hundreds of thousands of people are trafficked in the United States. Of all individuals trafficked, approximately 71% are female and most victims of sex trafficking in New England are from the U.S.*

The chances of finding a new life of liberation and freedom for these victims is slim due to lack of resources and support. Amirah is changing that for New England.

Today, Amirah is the only credited Tier 3 safe home in all of New England according to Homeland Security and is recognized as a national leader in the recovery of survivors of sex trafficking.
