Human Trafficking Survivors Foundation
Human Trafficking Survivors Foundation (FSTH), a non-profit 501 c (3) IRS Federal EIN 27-3906799, was established in October 2010. FSTH is formed by a team of volunteers and collaborators against modern slavery, domestic violence, and human trafficking. We all agree on working to raise awareness and break the silence while fighting for human rights.
FSTH works to eradicate modern slavery, human trafficking, and harmful exploitation of forced labor that traps people without distinction of gender and age in a system of debt bondage or restricts physical, mental, emotional, economic, and cultural freedom.
The foundation develops three phases in its vision as a social objective for humanitarian support:
Prevention | Restoration | Resocialization
FSTH collaborates with other organizations and has been recognized by the federal congress, the Senate, the Assembly, Orange County, the Department of Education, the Consulate of Mexico, and other prestigious organizations.
“A world without violence, without slavery, without exploitation, and survivors of abuse, violence and human trafficking living a dignified, happy and successful life”
Giving power to the community and survivors:
Raising Awareness. Mobilizing The Community. Advocating For Survivors.

Culture of Community Service
The value of our service speaks of our high sense of collaboration to help and serve others. Helping others to achieve well-being reminds the individual that there will always be someone to lend a helping hand during challenging moments when adversity happens.
We understand human dignity as a value or an intangible right of all individuals that should not be infringed upon. It is a fundamental right and an inherent value of the human being to have freedom. Individual dignity is based on the respect and esteem that an individual has for oneself.
Integrity is to return to the path of our truth, doing the right thing for the right reasons in a just way. Integrity requires a high level of maturity, both ethically and spiritually, since it is the value closest to perfection. All this leads the individual to act as well as possible in all the circumstances, making them reliable and an example of life for others in the way they think, talk and do.
Hope is the motivator that propels us to take action and get to work, and that is what helps us endure certain difficult moments in life, giving us consolation and courage to continue with faith that everything will turn out well. FSTH knows that an optimistic mood brings forth favorable results.
Personal growth is understood as the actualization of human potential (psychological and spiritual) that the person can achieve beyond their natural development, depending on their age and environment. That is why the human being evolves and is molded throughout a lifetime.
Respect is a value that allows us to recognize, appreciate, accept and respect the qualities and rights of ourselves and others. Respect is the recognition of one’s values and human and social rights, allowing society to live in peaceful, healthy coexistence.
Problems will always be part of life, but some can avoid them, and others have to solve them. Therefore, FSTH does not focus on the problems but the solutions because we know that when one door closes, another one opens.
We can understand and grasp the different moods that influence other people through this value. It is a capacity that we have, and through it, we can understand the situations presented in life.
Peace serves as a guide to leading a dignified life and a social life without violence among people, groups, and nations. In addition, it strengthens values in homes and institutions. Peace is found in the stability and balance within unity.
Service is the attention and willingness to meet a social need or the needs of individuals. It is the intention and capacity of a human being to console, help and see his fellow human being happy and provide welfare through esteem, courage, friendship, and pleasure.
Justice is based on respect, equality, equity, and freedom; it is a moral principle of each person and virtue that we all must put into practice. Justice as a moral value sustains society; most people choose to respect the good of civilized and harmonious life.
Freedom does not impede the freedom of others nor damage the physical, mental or emotional manners. Freedom is a principle of integrity and respect for one’s existence, free-thinking, and free feeling. It is a right of free expression in one’s own and individual integrity and personal preservation principles.
Solidarity recognizes the common good and those who stand in solidarity for responding favorably to the needs of others. Solidarity defines collaboration between people and keeps human beings united under challenging moments. We are collaborating for a cause in helping, defending, and providing support for the integrity of those who need it.
Resiliency is the ability to overcome adversity to continue projecting into the future and helping you overcome obstacles, and gaining emotional strength by achieving harmonious and productive personal and professional relationships. In addition, resiliency enables you to obtain positive results in any aspect of your life.
FSTH offers three services for our community and survivors of domestic violence, modern-day slavery, and human trafficking.
