The Louisiana Coalition Against Human Trafficking (LACAHT) is a faith-based 501(c)3 non profit

created to alleviate human trafficking in Louisiana through community education, government

agency training, and victim rescue and rehabilitation at the Free Indeed Home.

The Free Indeed Home is a faith-based home dedicated to the rescue and restoration of girls

ages 12 to 17 years who have been victimized by child sex trafficking. The Home serves as a

safe and protected place of restoration and healing through a wholistic program that addresses

the physical, spiritual, emotional, mental, educational, and vocational needs of each girl. Integral

to this mission is the goal of showing each girl the love of God and teaching each one how to

receive freedom through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."

St. Theresa of Calcutta


What is a safe house? A safe house is a home in an undisclosed location to aid minor girls who have been involved in human trafficking. 

The home is a peaceful home that meets the needs of our girls and allows them to travel the path of healing and restoration.


Our girls are precious children of God who have experienced unimaginable complex trauma

during their young lives.

Just like any other teenage girl they are sweet, fun-loving, creative, expressive, and full of life.

They desire unconditional love, a place to belong, family and friendships.
