"You may choose to look the other way,
but you can never again say that you did not know."

- William Wilberforce

We are not accountable for what we don’t know, but now that you know, what will you do?
Get plugged in with us at Street Hope TN, and join the movement to bring an end to Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking!

"Nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light." Luke 8:17

Our desire is to shine a light on the travesty that is Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking - to expose the darkness and raise awareness that commercial sexual exploitation of children does happen today. The more people who know, the more children are identified and the more perpetrators are arrested. We would love to help you host an event - if you provide the venue, we will be glad to work alongside you to create an opportunity to bring awareness and training to your group.

DMST: What is it and How do We Respond?

We provide training to equip individuals to identify signs of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) and sexual exploitation of children, as well as the proper way to respond if they believe they identified a victim. This training is also for teachers, as it can assist in identifying and rescuing students who may be victims of DMST or those who may be suffering from exploitation at home. This training is required for all Street Hope TN volunteers.

Prevention Project: (Coming Soon!)

The Prevention Project was created to aid in stopping sexual exploitation before it begins. This training is a video series for youth, that includes a discussion guide as well as curriculum which can be used in the classroom setting. Prevention Project covers information on internet safety (i.e. hidden apps, chatrooms, sexting, permanence of what is placed on internet, etc.), grooming, predators and victims, as well as training on what DMST is and how it begins. When completed, youth will be able to recognize signs of sexual exploitation and DMST, and will be aware of the dangers of participating in risky behaviors that could lead to them being targeted or lured into exploitation.

Internet Safety | Navigating the Digital World (FOR ADULTS)

This training is the sister presentation to “Prevention Project”. It was created specifically to train adults – parents, teachers, pastors. It includes training on internet safety (i.e. hidden apps, chatrooms, sexting, permanence of what is placed on internet, etc.), and equips parents and teachers to identify signs of children and youth participating in risky behaviors online. It also discusses grooming, predators and victims, as well as training on what DMST is and how it begins.

Connect + Mobilize

We connect and mobilize churches, community organizations and individual volunteers to engage in the elimination of DMST. We also partner with other like-minded organizations on a comprehensive path to eradicate sexual exploitation and sex-trafficking of children in East Tennessee.

"The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective." James 5:16

Street Hope TN has a dedicated and diverse group of believers who gather together once a month to pray for SHTN, the victims of DMST, the perpetrators, the law enforcement officers who respond to human trafficking and sexual exploitation cases, and so much more!

Street Hope TN is a faith-driven and supported movement of individuals in response to the evil of DMST.

Because of this, we rely on the financial support of local churches, organizations and individuals to make it possible to do the work of mobilizing our efforts. We appreciate your gift of any amount and want you to know we receive it with a commitment to be wise stewards of your resources.
