Restore NYC’s mission is to end sex trafficking in New York and restore the well-being and independence of foreign national survivors. Working to that end, Restore finds victims through outreach strategies and partnerships with law enforcement, the court system, and community-based organizations, and restores survivors through their groundbreaking safehouse program.
Mission: To end sex trafficking in New York and restore the well-being and independence of foreign-national survivors.
Vision: For every survivor, the promise of a new life. For our nation, the end of modern-day slavery.
Our volunteers at the safehouse build friendships with residents by gathering for meals and special events, like outings to the movies, and makeover and spa nights.
Our grants support rent and food costs for Restore's safehouse. It is the first long-term transitional safehouse in the Northeast dedicated to foreign-born survivors of sex trafficking.
Restore NYC participated in workshops focused on outcome measurement and tracking program effectiveness, assisting them to tailor their "Restored Life Outcomes Matrix" to the safehouse program.
All volunteers will be asked to complete an online application, a volunteer orientation, and a background check in order to serve at Restore NYC. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
