The greatest need in providing help for survivors of human trafficking in America is long-term housing, trauma counseling, education and employment. Worthwhile Wear achieves this through its US based program, The Well. The need for housing is evident, understanding that Worthwhile Wear receives a new lead of a local survivor on average every 72 hours
Human Trafficking in many countries is driven by economics. Families and girls are lured into the false hope of earning income through a job offer given by a trafficker. Worthwhile Wear eliminates this common trafficking tactic by eliminating the root cause, and offering vocational training and employment.
The challenge for all non-profits is creating a model that is financially sustainable, allowing for long-term success.

It also sells items crafted by the survivors in Worthwhile Wear's India programs.
