About

Gateway to Freedom Foundation is an anti-human trafficking initiative that combats human trafficking by driving down the demand in cities across the United States.

We accomplish this by freeing and protecting people from consumer sexual beliefs and behaviors so they can thrive in their life, relationships, and community.

We connect buyers of consumer sex to proven pathways and resources that lead to freedom.

We educate on victim identification, as well as how to respond in safe and effective ways leading to rescue.

We train chaplains and lay leaders across the United States to identify and deter criminal activity.

Why support the Gateway to Freedom Foundation?

We restore lives and families

Investing in relational health is a gift to children.
Although commonly misunderstood consumer sex (i.e. consuming pornography, prostitution, or adult venues) has many serious, long-term negative outcomes that not only effect the one consuming it, but their family, friends and community.

Similar to the effects a steady diet of junk food has on one’s physical health, consumer sex wreaks havoc on one’s emotional and relational health. By making it possible for people to become free from consumer sexual beliefs and behaviors we are helping restore lives and families.

We put sex trafficking out of business

Sex trafficking is a supply and demand crime.
Just as vital and motivating to our work is knowing that when we successfully free people from consumer sex, we simultaneously put pimps and traffickers out of business.

When more and more people become free not only does it restore lives and family relationships, which makes our communities stronger, but it also effectively ends the scourge of sex trafficking in the world.

We protect generations of children from being trafficked

Free people, free others.
The ultimate value of our work is that generations of children will never be trafficked in the first place. So if restoring lives and families as well as effectively ending sex trafficking is something you get excited about, then we would love to have you join us or support the work.

Whether you’re an individual, a local church, a truck company or business, there is a way for you to get involved. Learn how you can make a difference below.

Did you know one third of active buyers say they wish they could stop?

Many people feel trapped in consumer sexual behavior they know is costing them everything they care about: their marriage and relationships, their emotional health, as well as their careers and legacy. There is hope. Don’t wait any longer to get free. Join the growing community of people breaking free every day.

There are three ways below that you can start your path to freedom today: the Live Free community app, the Gateway to Freedom workshop, and consultation support.

Who should attend Gateway to Freedom (GTF) Intensive?

The GTF intensive is for men* (married, single, or divorced; age 20 or older) who display any of the following characteristics:

  • Regular use of pornography
  • Have had one or more affairs
  • Habitual masturbation
  • Lying to hide secret sexual behaviors
  • Feelings of intense shame over sexual behaviors
  • Desire to deal aggressively with lust struggles
  • Secret sexual fantasies
  • Experienced unwanted sexual encounters during childhood or adolescence

*If you are a pastor (or working in ministry), we understand your struggle and we know how to help you, too.

Is there a limited number of men who can attend?

Yes! There is limited space for each intensive, therefore only the first 14-16 men to register will secure a spot.

So, be sure to register early to ensure your space at the intensive. If the intensive fills up, you will be offered a spot an opening at the next upcoming intensive date.

Why do you limit the number of men at each intensive?

Real transformation often occurs in a small group setting. By limiting the number of men attending the GTF intensive, it allows for more interaction among all the men. Smaller groups prevent a man from feeling like a number and provides each man with quality attention and care. Breakout groups are, therefore, never larger than 8 men, usually around 6-8 in each group.

Is there an application process for the intensive?

Yes and no. While there is no formal, or clinical, application process to register for the GTF intensive, we do screen each potential participant to ensure that they are a good fit for the program (this is accomplished by completing a short questionnaire. For instance, the GTF intensive would not be a good fit for someone battling alcohol or drugs. This program is exclusively for men struggling with sexual strongholds in thoughts and behaviors.

What are the cancellation policies?

We understand that there could be reasons arise where you need to cancel. We want to do our best to work with you in these situations. There are a few options for you to consider:

  1. Payment deferment to another intensives with no additional fees. This allows you to pick any of our other intensives to attend and not lose any money.
  2. Full refund minus cancellation fee ($45) for cancellation prior to two weeks from the intensive start date.
  3. Half refund if canceling within 2 weeks of the intensive start date. Due to the fact that we have to pay the venues in full before the intensive, canceling within two weeks means that we have already paid for your spot in the intensive. If this is your only option we will gladly refund you half of the price you paid. For example, if you paid the full $1197 you will receive a refund of $598.50. If you had a $250 scholarship and paid $947, you will receive a refund of $473.50. You will only receive half of what you paid.
Is there internet access at the Intensive?

No. We want to create an environment that is free from all distraction to the task of focusing on healing and recovery. All intensive facilities are free of Internet access. We do allow men to keep their cell phones if they wish, but ask that they only be used to contact family or for emergencies.

Training

Gateway to Freedom Foundation can equip you to make a difference

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead

One of our core beliefs is that there is a modern day abolitionist in all of us. The high majority of people are appalled by the reality of sex trafficking in the world, and desire to see it end. People want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. With over 15 years in anti-sex trafficking work GTFF can equip you, your company or organization to effectively combat this crime.

Training

Truck Industry

A key battle ground for the fight against trafficking

The trucking industry has long been a key target for pimps and traffickers across the U.S. as they rely on the buyer demand of drivers. This makes the trucking industry a strategic partner in the fight against sex trafficking. We offer training to professional drivers and companies, through our “Culture Carrier” training program, to help win the fight against sex trafficking.

Culture Carrier Training

  • Harnesses the goodwill of drivers and companies
  • Equips and unleashes fleets of modern day abolitionists
  • Redefines and protects the legacy of the truck industry
Training

Lay Leaders

A responsibility of all citizens

Because sex trafficking happens in every major city and town across the United States, every citizen has the potential to help end it. Whether you are a parent, teacher, coach, pastor or student, you are a modern day abolitionist. So why not be a trained one.

We are multiplying modern day abolitionists by training lay people and community groups through our Play to End the Game initiative.

Training

Chaplains

Salt and Light in the fight against trafficking

We train and equip chaplains, through TFC Global, to be a presence of hope and healing in areas commonly used for human trafficking. Our chaplains are making a difference by learning safe and effective ways to connect victims of trafficking to rescue and services, as well as how to drive down the demand by ministering to “buyers,” and connecting them to paths leading to freedom.
We currently train chaplains in 14 states across the United States with the goal to expand to more. The chaplaincy ministry is growing. Interested in becoming a chaplain? Apply here. Or, learn how you can help support a local chapter near you.
