We exist to eradicate human trafficking by empowering survivors, equipping communities, and seeking justice through systemic change.
To see a slave free community through the rehabilitation and empowerment of survivors and a community galvanized against human trafficking
We are an interdenominational, Gospel-centered team. We believe God created all people in his image to know him, love him and glorify him. We believe violence destroys hope, and true restoration involves men and women knowing the fullness and significance of their humanity and identity with Christ. We strive to glorify God by working alongside the Memphis community on behalf of the exploited.
Restore Corps provides assistance to victims of trafficking regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, or gender, and we are grateful for the support of all people of good will.
Our team of abolitionists began as the anti-trafficking team of Operation Broken Silence in 2010. We provided case management to twenty-eight human trafficking victims and were consulted for training or expert advice to multiple agencies and professionals throughout the state of Tennessee, including St. Francis Hospital, AGAPE Child and Family Services, The Exchange Club, Department of Child Services, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, among others. We have served as expert panelists or speakers for conferences hosted by the University of Memphis Law School, University of Memphis Social Work Department, Union University Social Work, and University of Tennessee Health Sciences, and we are an appointed member of the Tennessee Human Trafficking Task Force. Our team authored and lobbied for nineteen legislative changes all of which are now in effect. Under these legislative changes, Tennessee is recognized nationally as the leading state in anti-trafficking law. Restore Corps is composed of the former anti trafficking team of Operation Broken Silence along with some additional staff and volunteers that have joined since the development of this new nonprofit.
