There are dozens of different ways to free them...
They are all listed on this site for you to choose...
We view those who have escaped as heroes...
Let’s be there for them when they dash for freedom.
Welcome to Free Slave With Your Own Hands!
Our goal here is to connect you with organizations in the Chicagoland and Milwaukee areas who are fighting human trafficking. On our pages, you will find endless opportunities that will allow you personally to work to end human trafficking through helping victims, planning events, educating the public and so much more.
No matter your level of experience, there is a job here for you, a place that needs you, a project for you to be involved in. It’s not about having any certain ability, it is about having the love and the drive to bring an end to this horrible blight on humanity. Through us, find the perfect volunteer opportunity for you today.
The list of ways to free victims physically that is safe and non-violent.
Once they are freed physically they need to be rescued from the bonds to their old lives. Anything done to make their new life better breaks those bonds. Bringing household goods, fundraising for safe houses, mentoring, etc. are also rescue. Click Here to learn more.

ITEMS NEEDED BY VARIOUS GROUPS:
-There are at least 6 groups trying to start safe houses but lack the funds to do so. Some
of them could get started right away if they could get a house donated to them or even
rent free use of a house donated to them. If you have one or know of one let us know and
we will connect you directly to those groups. This would probably be the difference in
getting another desperately needed safe house started. Thanks for spreading the word!
Contact us at: fswyoh at gmail.com
-A large vehicle to transport materials for fundraisers. Compassion To The Rescue will
be running large fundraisers to support the safe houses and need anything from a
minivan to a small truck to move materials on a regular basis. fswyoh at gmail.com
-Laptops to help survivors get jobs, to train volunteers and manage our mobile
fundraisers. Contact us at: fswyoh at gmail.com (@ replaced to avoid spam).
