About Hands of Justice
Hands of Justice’s mission is to provide Economic Empowerment for Human Trafficking Survivors through awareness, outreach, Survivor scholarships, and Survivor led support groups.
- Awareness: Hands of Justice educates the community on Human Trafficking via seminars, events and awareness programs. Hands of Justice will educate and train small groups, churches, schools, social clubs and agencies.
- Outreach: Hands of Justice provides 85+ “Freedom Bags” per month to Survivors of Human Trafficking and homeless individuals. Each bag contains essential items to help make life easier. You can help by donating items by clicking and buying a few items via their Needs List on Amazon here.
- Scholarships: Hands of Justice provides Survivors of Human Trafficking scholarships that help with their education. Each scholarship helps with obtaining a GED, or attending a Certification program or College and ranges from $100 to $1500 per Survivor, per semester, depending on the need.
- Sponsor a Survivor: Hands of Justice is currently looking for individuals, families, or small groups to Sponsor a Survivor in their continuing education by donating once or monthly toward their scholarship.
- Support Groups: Hands of Justice is currently hosting two closed support groups in Montgomery and Harris County and are looking to start an open group for Survivors soon. In the meantime, Hands of Justice has a private online support group for any Survivor that needs continued support.
