We secure global communities by protecting those that cannot defend themselves by providing awareness and action.
Project Meridian Foundation’s (PMF) mission is to rehabilitate children who are victims of human trafficking, to assist in the identification, capture, and prosecution of traffickers by collaborating with international, federal, state, local law enforcement agencies, as well as Capitol Hill and other countries.
PMF launches strategic and collaborative initiatives, including legislation that creates laws, to counter illicit human trafficking. Since 2005, PMF has assisted with the detection and recovery of over 2,000 victims. PMF has identified and bolstered efforts for law enforcement to apprehend and prosecute more than 1,150 traffickers globally.
Although U.S. government funding focuses primarily on prevention through training and awareness, PMF assists with identification, predator prosecution, as well as victim protection, medical care, and rehab through the planned building of Safe Houses. Due to the complexity of the trafficking crime syndicates, PMF performs intelligence gathering in illicit trafficking through illegal U.S. entry routes and ports.
There is a deficiency in screening procedures in U.S. government agencies and non-profit organizations to identify victims, which PMF helps to identify. Further, PMF plans to build the first Operational Safe House and will escort victims to this undisclosed, secure, remote facility and provide a safe environment free from intimidation, to begin the healing. Victims will be fed, clothed, sheltered, given medical care and counseling. For non-U.S. victims, PMF will assist Law Firms in obtaining T or U Visas.
