HELPING SURVIVORS / VISITING A SHELTER


Q:
 Can I send letters to survivors? And if yes, where can I mail them?

A: We would love for you to write a letter or card to the survivors in our restoration facilities. Some ideas of what to write are:

  • Words of encouragement.
  • Let them know you are thinking of/praying for them
  • Anything to cheer them up and let them know you believe in them and their ability to overcome.

All letters and cards should be sent to our USA or Greece office, where they will be screened and forwarded to the survivors in our shelter. Please address your letter generically (ie. ‘Dear Beautiful’ or ‘Dear Friend’).

The USA & Greece locations are currently the offices distributing cards to survivors.

  • USA: The A21 Campaign 2781 W. MacArthur Blvd  Ste B #605 Santa Ana, CA 92704
  • Greece: The A21 Campaign P.O. Box 10218 TK 54110 Thessaloniki, Greece

 

Q: Can I send gifts to the survivors in the shelters?

A: Yes, we ask that anyone with a desire to provide gifts, clothing or sanitary items for the survivors in our shelters to send gift cards such as: Target, Ikea, Visa, etc. to the closest office between USA or Greece. Gifts can be mailed to:

  • USA:  The A21 Campaign 2781 W. MacArthur Blvd  Ste B #605 Santa Ana, CA 92704
  • Greece: The A21 Campaign P.O. Box 10218 TK 54110 Thessaloniki, Greece   

 

Q: Can I visit an A21 shelter?

A: While we appreciate your desire to personally visit our shelters, we do not allow this for a number of reasons. We want to protect the confidentiality and privacy of the survivors in our shelters. The survivors in our shelters are often suffering from trauma related to psychological and emotional issues, and are not in a position to cope with visitors. Due to the criminal nature of human trafficking, we do not disclose the locations of our shelters.

 

Q: Do you offer short-term mission trips?

A:  Our shelter programs do not allow short visits or mission trips at this time, as both our shelters and transition homes work directly with victims of human trafficking who require consistency and stability throughout the aftercare process. We feel it is in the best interest of survivors in our care to have the same people around them during their journey of healing, which is why we only allow staff members and local, long-term volunteers to assist in the shelters.
