Summary

In the 21st century, far too many people are trapped in the darkness of sex trafficking and homelessness. Without a path toward freedom, many of these individuals will die without ever knowing they are loved. Frontline Response is on the frontlines every day, rescuing these individuals and preventing the most vulnerable in society, our children, from falling victim. When people are rescued out of sex trafficking and homelessness, they can begin to walk out God's purpose for their lives and become a beacon of light for others.

History

Founded in 2003, Frontline Response began with a heart for the frontlines - always seeking to find a need and meet it. Since incorporating in 2010, Frontline Response has assisted nearly 1,500 victims out of sex trafficking and transitioned over 1,000 men, women, and children out of homelessness. In 2018, the organization added youth prevention to its mission and has provided prevention programming to more than 600 youth facing adversity in overlooked communities throughout Metro Atlanta.

Frontline Response has developed a prototype for outreach, rescue, and emergency safe housing in the fight against sex trafficking that is sought after nationally. The organization has provided training to law enforcement, fire departments, emergency rooms, and judges; helped lead anti-trafficking efforts around large events including the Super Bowl in numerous cities; and advocated for state legislative and policy changes that have seen Georgia rise from the grade of a "C" to having the 4th best laws in the nation, according to Shared Hope International. Frontline Response holds a Platinum Level ranking from GuideStar, the world's largest source of information on nonprofit organizations, and serves under the leadership of an 15-member Board of Directors comprised of business leaders throughout greater Atlanta.
