Buffett Foundation Awards $4+ Million to Safe Alliance for Human Trafficking

Safe Alliance was sought out by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation to improve the effectiveness of human trafficking investigations and prosecutions, strengthen victim support services, and increase collaboration between agencies across North Carolina. The total grant is over $9.6 million over five years with over $4 million coming to Safe Alliance. This funding will enable us to collaborate with existing organizations, seek out national training and expertise, and bolster our resources for human trafficking survivors, including adding advocates, clinicians, and a community liaison.  

Federal statistics indicate that Human Trafficking is the largest and fastest-growing crime worldwide, generating $150 billion in illegal profits each year.
North Carolina consistently ranks in the top 10 worst states for reported human trafficking cases and Charlotte is the number 1 city in our state. There is a great demonstrated need for improved services to support survivors throughout the lengthy process of seeking justice and healing from the trauma of trafficking. Safe Alliance is proud to be providing these life-changing services to community members in need.
