Temporary Shelters

Each of our Shelters is equipped with the supplies needed to meet the basic physical, medical, and psychological needs of each trafficked girl. For each of these women, the Shelter is an important first step on the road to justice and restoration.

 

An Important First Step for Trafficking Victims

After our staff identifies a trafficking victim, she is immediately taken to one of our Temporary Shelters – located just minutes away from our Border Monitoring Stations. One of our top priorities is ensuring that every girl who comes through our Temporary Shelter files a police report, the first step in the journey towards justice.

Each Shelter is equipped with the supplies needed to meet the basic physical, medical, and psychological needs of each trafficked girl. Although these shelters are not extravagant, they are a much-needed safe haven. Our Border Monitoring Staff members can also stay at these shelters if they choose, creating an environment of trust and safety.

The average stay at our Temporary Shelter is about a week, and from there, girls are either repatriated to their families or taken to our Safe Home in Kathmandu.
