What We Do

pre·ven·tion — to be in readiness

The Demand Project believes in educating, equipping, and empowering the community on how to stay safe against online predators, child traffickers/buyers, and anyone that seeks to sexually exploit children for commercial and personal gain. We provide in-depth presentations on how predators and traffickers operate, how to keep children safe online and in the community, and how you can stay educated on any emerging technological trends and trafficking tricks.

pro·tec·tion — a legal or other formal measure intended to preserve civil liberties and rights

TDP’s Legal Department experiences first-hand the practical effects of current laws relating to human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). In response, the legal teams provide court advocacy, advice on legislation for victim rights, and pursue civil litigation against the buyers who create the demand for the trafficking of humans.

re·cov·er·y — the action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost

The Demand Project believes there is an integral place for NGO’s to be of assistance to law enforcement, the community, and service providers in the rescue of victims of human trafficking, online enticement, child abuse imagery, and the commercial sexual exploitation of children. VASTeams (victim advocate support teams) offer hotline services, crisis center intervention with minor medical needs, victim advocacy, court advocacy, transportation to safe shelters, and emergency resource links.

res·to·ra·tion — to put or bring back into existence

The Demand Project’s Journey to Freedom program is uniquely designed to serve survivors of human trafficking and CSEC non-residentially through facilitating vetted and active referrals as well as a two-year residential restoration program at the Mount Arukah campus for girls ages 11-17 under the authority of the Oklahoma Department of Health and Human Services.

The Journey to Freedom model is a victim-centered, community-driven, trauma-informed approach that focuses on restoring victims to survivors, and equipping survivors to become thriving members of our communities.
