What You Can Do To Help

Here at Roost Foundation, we believe we all have a role to play in creating a free world. Our organization focuses on working with local police to find and free modern slaves and arrest traffickers, but there are numerous ways YOU can help fight human trafficking in your own community.
a) Bring awareness to your social circles so your friends and family know more about trafficking.
b) Consider volunteering with a local counter-trafficking organization.
c) Donate money to an organization that works on the front lines.
d) Call the National Human Trafficking Hotline if you notice suspicious activity.
e) Be a friend to someone who’s alone and vulnerable.
No action is too small. Never underestimate the difference you can make in someone’s life through one small act of kindness.
