What We Do
pre·ven·tion — to be in readiness
The Demand Project is committed to educating, equipping, and empowering the community to protect itself against online predators, child traffickers/buyers, and individuals seeking to sexually exploit children for financial and personal gain. TDP offers comprehensive presentations on predator and trafficker strategies, online and community child safety, and staying informed about emerging technological trends and trafficking tactics.
pro·tec·tion — a legal or other formal measure intended to preserve civil liberties and rights
TDP’s Legal Department helps to protect survivors by offering access to quality legal services, prison and court advocacy, counsel on relevant legislation, and the pursuit of civil litigation against buyers driving the demand.
re·cov·er·y — the action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost
The Demand Project helps to identify and recover victims by collaborating with law enforcement, service providers, and community members with hotline services, crisis intervention, victim advocacy, court support, transportation to a safe place, and emergency resources.
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 in two ways. The first way is non-residentially through facilitating vetted and active referrals. The second option for the Journey to Freedom program is 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 them to become thriving members of our communities.
