The mission of The Set Me Free Project is to bring prevention education to youth and families so traffickers lose their power. We do that by offering prevention education on the dangers of sex trafficking and social media safety to youth, parents, educators, social services, and businesses. Our offices are located in Omaha, Nebraska at the National Safety Council. Omaha is home to more Fortune 500 companies per capita, ranked one of the best places to live in U.S. News, and ranked one of the most affordable according to Yahoo Finance. Omaha is a very generous community that loves its nonprofit organizations. Human traffickers go after the vulnerable. One of the vulnerabilities that traffickers target are individuals living in poverty. When we address trafficking, we address the vulnerabilities of poverty.
