Project Free is one of the very few places in New York City where Asian trafficking survivors can go to receive culturally and linguistically appropriate services that help them to regain their freedom, recover from trauma and reach stability and self-sufficiency. Since its launch in 2005, Project Free has assisted over 400 individuals and families.
