Our goal is to take down human trafficking networks–for good
Human traffickers see people as replaceable products. Even when a victim escapes, traffickers hunt for another. Our strategy is to take down human trafficking networks, creating an exponential impact. It protects more people, frees more victims, and prevents the vulnerable from becoming victims in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.
In America, it is a market that is growing exponentially, putting $975 million in the pockets of human traffickers every year.
But with your support, we can make a difference.
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, there was an 846% increase in reported child sex trafficking cases from 2010 to 2015.
In 2019, NCMEC responded to over 10,700 reports regarding possible child sex trafficking.
Children most susceptible due to online activity are 12-17.
We recommend reading our blog post on “12 Ways to Engage, Educate, and Protect Your Children Online.” All of our children who have access to social media or have direct contact with the World Wide Web should have safety discussions and safety plans in place.
Traffickers gain access to their victims through a variety of methods. They can be family members or acquaintances, or they can be complete strangers who use social media to groom their potential victims. See our guide for recognizing Human Trafficker Grooming Behaviors for more details.
Law enforcement are often understaffed and under resourced when it comes to taking on this national epidemic. With your support, DeliverFund is able to provide law enforcement the tools and training to go after the human traffickers and put them behind bars.
For prosecutors, human trafficking charges are notoriously difficult to prosecute. Unlike other crimes, the key piece of evidence is a living human being who has been through hell and back. Trafficking survivors are deeply misunderstood and judged by many before they even step foot on the stand and therefore are looked at as less credible witnesses. The psychology of a trafficking survivor and their experience is not one many prosecutors want to work with and would rather have the subject plea to charges that don’t rely on survivor testifying. This leads to the prosecutor getting a secured conviction without having to use the survivor as a witness and, unfortunately, the trafficker not being put away for as long as they deserve.
To change the mentality of prosecutors across the United States, there needs to be more dedicated prosecutors who only work human trafficking cases. Currently, prosecutors who are handed the human trafficking cases are inundated with other sex crime and assault cases from their jurisdiction, and this keeps them from focusing on the intricacies and details that are required to present a strong case against a trafficker. Also, providing detectives and agents with the tools and training to hand over airtight evidence against the trafficker that doesn’t require the survivor to testify is key. This is something DeliverFund prides itself in providing during our training courses.
There are many similarities between counterterrorism and counter human trafficking.
At DeliverFund, we have decades of experience from our careers in the CIA, NSA, Special Operations, and law enforcement, and we use the same counterterrorism methodologies in our previous careers and apply them to the fight against human trafficking. If human traffickers touch the internet, we can and do find them. By following the money and disrupting the human trafficking market, DeliverFund is taking these criminals out of the equation.
We announce all job openings on our social media, particularly on LinkedIn, when they are available.
