The Landing - Houston

The Landing - Houston The Landing is a nonprofit serving survivors of human trafficking and commercial s*xual exploitation through outreach, advocacy, and a drop-in center.

The Landing started as a dream to reach survivors who were slipping through the cracks. Inspired by their faith, our founders desired to increase victim identification and connect more victims with support and services. Their hope was to create a safe space for survivors, regardless of whether they are ready to leave their situation. In January 2016, we opened our doors as the first and only drop-

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month - The first step to prevention is knowing the facts

👉 It is a horrible reality that children are being sexually abused every day. In fact, it's estimated that 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused by the time they turn 18.

This graphic is to communicate the relation and distinction between sexual violence, sexual exploitation, and sex trafficking.

Establishing solutions to human trafficking requires taking a critical look at societal issues, systems, and factors that make people vulnerable to trafficking. It also requires us to take a deep dive in understanding what challenges survivors of color face when trying to regain control of their lives. We must first admit that racial discrimination exists in present day and historically. History that is not acknowledged repeats itself and all history isn’t good. Racial discrimination limits our society, hinders growth and progress, and impacts the daily lives of survivors of human trafficking. If discrimination continues to grow, we fall short of reaching our full potential. So, we stand with the United Nations for the International Day of Elimination of Racial Discrimination so that our world can be a safe place for all people.



Over the past year, the Justice Series team comprised of Twelve11Partners, United Against Human Trafficking, Faith Collaborative, and The Landing has taken a stand against Racial Discrimination in the anti-trafficking movement and plan to continue this great work. Join us!

71% of those being trafficking are women.
Today as we celebrate women and fight for their rights, we also take time to remember why we are in this fight against human trafficking. We believe that everyone deserves to be loved, safe, and free.

Our hope is to share the love of Christ and help survivors find safety, empowerment, and freedom.

Our Story

Entrusted with this great vision of not only serving but walking alongside men and women who are survivors of human trafficking and commercial s*xual exploitation, we were challenged on what to call ourselves, the place we operate, and the people we need to reach. In the end, our mission did the bidding. The Landing is a resting place--a place of comfort and sustenance. It is a welcoming place where survivors of human trafficking and the commercial s*x trade can be cared for, nurtured, and encouraged holistically in a respecting, trauma-informed environment. The Landing has a drop-in center at the intersections of life. We empower those working in the commercial s*x trade and victims of human trafficking by making them aware of the available resources and meeting their basic needs and services. We understand that those we seek to support may decide to remain where they are. We affirm that this is their right. Our intention is to meet people where they are—wherever it may be—and support them during their journey. What makes The Landing different is that we recognize that the potential of a person is self-directed. We endeavor to kindle a hope in those we get to know through this process and see these connections as two-sided, mutually enriching relationships. Guided by the principle of inclusivity and understanding, we hold ourselves accountable to this principle. Our sincere concern is in the well-being of all. The reality of those in the commercial s*x trade and the human trafficked going without basic necessities and care is what motivates us to continue working for the men and women living in our communities without adequate support to live healthily. We are fortunate to have a committed group of staff and volunteers who believe in what we do and the people we cross paths with everyday.
