Our Mission

INsideOUT is established, “to bring awareness and understanding of human trafficking to our communities instilling a commitment for action to benefit those impacted.”

Our Work

Our work has been developed from a collaboration of hundreds of hours of nation-wide trainings from leading organizations working to eradicate human trafficking. Our training in anti-human trafficking efforts has equipped us to work with victims, other non-government organization, and government agencies to help youth (18 and under).  INsideOUT believes we can equip youth to recognize signs of human trafficking, in an effort to protect them and others who are at risk. INsideOUT uses a multi-tiered approach to build healthy mentorship-relationships with at risk youth and victims, teaching recognition of behavioral triggers, educating them on the diverse aspects of human trafficking, to prevent this crime from continuing in our communities.

Through this approach we can provide resources and support to youth in need.

The INsideout story

INsideOUT S&S was founded by a stay-at-home mom who was burdened with the reality that some children were enslaved in the sex industry.  She had a two-fold dream of  a cutting hair and putting an end to human sex-trafficking.  November 2011 this dream became a reality when INsideOUT salon opened it's doors.  Initially focused on overseas sex trafficking, INsideOUT partnered with Destiny Rescue, bringing awareness to the complex issues of sex trafficking while sponsoring 5 children for 3 yrs.  During this time, INsideOUT supported Destiny Salon and Hair Dressing program with supplies and financial support.

In 2014, Shared Hope International graded all the states in their Human Trafficking report card.  Idaho scored an "F" grade.  Concurrently, the board of INsideOUT S&S went through a restructure, paving the way for us to do our work 100% locally.  

Since then, INsideOUT Cares has been able to provide immediate needs of sex trafficking survivors.  Through our partnerships with law enforcement, task forces, legislators, local organizations, and churches we have been able to find, assess, and provide support for over 80 girls in the state of Idaho.  (See our "statistics" page for more information.)
