We partner with survivors' passions and dreams to see broken lives made whole.
Advocacy | Wholeness | Education | Vocation
The Whole Person
To reintegrate is to take what was broken and make whole. We desire to see these young women not just survive but thrive. Not only do we provide monthly grants for their living and educational expenses, but we offer them a family structure of love and encouragement they need. We believe that our investment in them will change not only them but the world.
We provide opportunities to be actively involved in addressing the injustice of human slavery. We advocate. We raise awareness and resources. We take steps out of our comfort zones to invest our finances, time, passions and gifting in survivors' lives and freedom. We desire to connect our action to the lives and passions of survivors who are like us. We believe that our investment in them will change not only the world but change us.
Seeing Dreams Fulfilled
While the women of Reintegra are always a part of our family, our desire is for them to achieve self-reliance and independence. These women have surmounted impossible obstacles on their journey of reintegration.
In Pursuit of Dreams
Whether it’s being a lawyer, an advocate, an artist or a health professional, each of these women has a dream of what they want to become. Reintegra provides grants for their educational and living cost in order for them to achieve their dreams.
The Next Generation
After being rescued and experiencing restoration in a safe home environment, these young survivors of human trafficking are ready to open a new chapter in their lives to begin pursuing an education and/or vocational training. In 2019, we are launching a new transitional program for this next generation and are excited to welcome them into the Reintegra family.
We strive to keep Reintegra as transparent as possible and we aim to be as effective as possible with every gift we are given.

Reintegra is proud to partner with organizations that share in supporting the cause of survivors of human trafficking.
Camino A Casa Foundation
Since 2005, Camino a Casa has helped hundreds of survivors rescued from human trafficking providing them with the first tier of restoration. It is a place where survivors gain recovery mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually while justice is sought in each of their cases including school and family reintegration.
As women graduate from their program, Reintegra works with Casa to consider ways we can support their living and continue their educational needs. Several of the Reintegra women give time at the shelter to support younger survivors.
The Commission United vs. Trafficking
The former Mexican Congresswoman, Rosi Orozco, founded the Comision Unidos vs. Trata in 2012 to be a coalition of organizations and people with the purpose of eradicating trafficking in persons.
The Commission works in collaboration with more than 100 NGOs, like Reintegra US, from Mexico, the United States, Canada, Colombia, Spain, Argentina and the United Kingdom to achieve this goal. It is under the sponsorship of Unidos vs. Trata that Reintegra women have traveled to various places around the world to advocate for this cause.
In 2019, Paty Gonzalez, one the women Reintegra supports, was given the honorary title of President of Comision Unidos vs. Trata.
Freedom 58 Project
Freedom 58 Project is a collaborative movement working to end modern-day slavery and violent oppression around the world.
Since its founding in 2009, Freedom 58, using the medium of art, has come alongside other anti-trafficking organizations, to promote their cause and raise funds for their valuable work. Reintegra formed an official partnership with Freedom 58 in 2017 and has collaborated together on events in Colorado, California and Mexico.
