Our Path To End Human Trafficking

Our “Three E” Strategy aims at offering a sustainable long-term strategy to aid in the fight to end human trafficking, specifically targeting the sex trade.

We host and co-sponsor events throughout the year dedicated to shining light on this issue and bringing together stakeholders to raise awareness about this crime. These include: film screenings, training sessions, speaker events and fund-raisers. PEHT also partners with other organizations engaging in advocacy efforts related to legislative measures to fight human trafficking in its many forms. For more information, visit .

PEHT is in the process of establishing a recovery and restoration program for adult, domestic born survivors of sex trafficking. The core of this program will be a residential home for women seeking to participate in a two-year recovery program modeled after the very successful Thistle Farms residential program in Nashville, TN. PEHT  is a sister organization to Thistle Farms.  The first residence will be located in the northeast I 95 corridor and will house 4-5 survivors.

Economic empowerment is critical for a survivor’s recovery to be sustainable.  Our social enterprise includes a pet product retail company initiative of PEHT that manufactures and sells pet products hand-crafted by survivors of trafficking, addiction and abuse, and by women whose economic vulnerability makes them potential targets of international traffickers. Residents and graduates of PEHT’s restoration program will be given vocational opportunities within this enterprise along with other jobs within the pet industry, one of the fastest growing business sectors in the United States.
