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-

Great article by @DallasMorningNews
updates us on Tyler Dunman who is on our Advisory Council! He left his life as a Houston-area prosecutor and moved with his wife and three young daughters to Uganda to fight s*x trafficking.

"The case is a high-water mark for trafficking prosecution in the developing world and it demonstrates how the rule of law, from allegation to evidence-gathering to trial, lifts up the cause of justice. It also gives us a sense of how dedicated but often overwhelmed law enforcement in the developing world, with the help of American experience and knowledge, can change their societies for the better."

The Landing Motivational Interviewing Tip of the month 👉

The nature of working with individuals who have been commercially s*xually exploited, requires us to talk about and inquire about sensitive topics such as drugs use, s*xual abuse, trauma, criminal activity, ect.

Normalizing client behaviors will help us navigate these “sensitive” topics effectively while maintaining interpersonal relationships-which is central in Motivational Interviewing and helps us express and show empathy.

Let's talk about RED FLAGS 🚩

These are the top 8 red flag phrases to identify a s*x trafficker 👉

To some, these messages may seem friendly and attentive however, traffickers use this as a tactic to gain trust, learn more about the individual, and discover vulnerabilities.

Share this with your friends to spread awareness!

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.
