What We Do

ARM stands for Art, Recreation and Movement. The horror of being trafficked affects every aspect of a person’s life. Our goal is to provide a variety of programs to enable each individual to “find their voice” and reclaim their lives. We partner with agencies working with those impacted by exploitation to provide custom therapeutic programs in all types of art, recreation & movement. In-person, video, 1:1, staff education etc.
