Unbound Now Waco (Nonprofit / Christian )

Our Vision:

We envision a future where our community is free from human trafficking.

Our Mission:

Unbound Now Waco supports survivors and resources our community to fight human trafficking.

Our Values

Hope Driven

In the dark world of human trafficking, we believe there is hope. Our hope comes from three main sources: our faith, our community, and the survivors we serve. We believe in a God of justice and restoration, who has called us to respond to this need. We are encouraged by a community ready to take action in the fight. And we are inspired by the strength, resilience and courage of the men, women and children we serve.

SERVICE ORIENTED

We actively seek to fill the needs and gaps in service in our community. As we serve survivors, we are also eager to serve our partners in law enforcement, hospitals, schools, and more.

EXCELLENCE FOCUSED

Unbound Now is committed to maintaining excellence in the service we provide. By following best practices, staying up-to-date on research, training our teams, and providing evidence-based programs, we seek to offer the best service to our community.

We are motivated by our faith and we are passionate about mobilizing communities, including, local law enforcement, churches, and professionals across industry to identify and fight human trafficking in their city.

Unbound Now's programs serve our community without regard to race, ethnicity, color, religion (creed), sex, gender identity and expression, age, English proficiency, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, or sexual orientation.

  • You were recruited to your work through false promises.

  • You are being threatened or abused in your job.

  • You work excessively long hours with no breaks.

  • You are unpaid or paid a small amount.
