Poiema Foundation - Education and Public Awareness of Human Trafficking

Engage Communities

Engaging the public to be eyes and ears in the community and identify human trafficking victims is essential to ending this modern-day slavery. Poiema has over 600 active volunteers involved in community outreach. Each Saturday, volunteers from one of our sixteen campuses distribute posters of missing minors throughout the metroplex. They visit hotels, truck stops, DART rail stations, first responders, etc. More than 570 locations receive posters. In partnership with 4theONE, 450 children have been recovered and sadly, more than half were victims of sex trafficking or sexual exploitation.
