Bronx, NY 10469
We invite you and select members of your house of worship throughout NYC for the opportunity to join the NYC Not On My Watch! Safe Haven Network, where houses of worship are set up through training and education as a safe place for human trafficking and domestic violence victims. Your house of worship will be certified by the NYC Faith-Based Coalition Against Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence and recognized by service providers and city agencies. We realized that faith must take the lead on this growing industry where in NYC we lost over 2,300 children, average age 12-14, to sex trafficking. Sexual assault is also prevalent in our communities. This is a ground-breaking, pioneering effort across our city and we know you can play a major role in this movement.
The training is free and is open to you and select members of your congregation. Two full days of training required followed by citywide graduation. The schedule is as follows:
