Salvation Foundation | Kara Garland

“The world we were born into no longer exists. Trafficking (slavery), has been around for thousands of years. However, it’s up to US to make a difference NOW. And we CAN.” – Kara Garland, Founder, TSF

The International Labor Organization, an arm of the United Nations, estimated the profits associated with sexual exploitation/trafficking reaching $150 Billion. This makes human trafficking the third largest criminal enterprise in the world, with only drug trade and counterfeiting ranking above it.


Lives Impacted

Salvation Foundation has set a goal to impact 500+ lives upon it’s first year. 

The primary mission of the Salvation Foundation is to aid in the awareness, prevention, rescue and rehabilitation of sex trafficking victims and survivors.


There are countless reasons why awareness is so important. Here are a few:

Don’t Look Away

A common misconception about human trafficking is that it does not happen in the United States. This is false, as the United States is ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. It is estimated that 199,000 incidents occur within the United States every year.

Traffickers typically target women, and children who are vulnerable, have little to no social safety net or who are without strong family relationships. It can happen to people of any age, race, gender or nationality. Violence, manipulation, or false promises of a well-paying job are often used to lure victims into trafficking situations.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

-Edmund Burke


There are countless reasons why awareness is so important. Here are a few:

$150 Billion is generated every year through human trafficking

Only $124 Million is spent every year fighting human trafficking

Hiding in Plain Sight

According to the U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report, “Traditionally, traffickers have subjected women and girls to sex trafficking in brothels, bars, and massage parlors; however, in an attempt to better conceal their crimes, some traffickers have changed tactics and now exploit victims in hotel rooms and private apartments, making them harder for law enforcement to detect.”

She Has a Voice

“I was trafficked at the age of 4 by my babysitter and her husband.”

“A teacher would have been the most helpful to either give me the number of a helpline or call for me.”

“For a long time, I did not realize that I was trafficked, I thought that because he gave me a choice to stay or go and I chose to stay, that it made it my fault and my responsibility.”

“They sold me over and over again. Day and night. The other kids and I were dehumanized and were were told that we were only there to make them money.

“I was sold by a trafficker because he said it would help take care of my younger siblings because my mom was not able to take care of us.”

“I was tortured and beaten up almost everyday. They killed other children that misbehaved and made all of the other kids watch. I was only 7 years old.”

“I now know too much to sit idle and do nothing. My goal is to create awareness and build momentum to decrease the number of victims through prevention and rescue. We need to put an end to the terror and trauma of sex trafficking.”

Kara Garland is the Founder, visionary, and heart of The Salvation Foundation. She is an empowered survivor of sexual violence and abuse as a child, teenage, and adult. The Salvation Foundation is her newly founded component fund of the Inland Empire Community Foundation aimed at combating child sexual abuse, exploitation, and trafficking; also, rescuing and rehabilitating victims and survivors. After finding her own voice as a survivor, she has set on a path to create an expansive network of resources, tools, partnerships and alignment with other organizations and facilities to combat the scourge of child sexual abuse, violence, exploitation, and trafficking. She intends to work every angle, from investigation and rescue teams alongside law enforcement, to education initiatives, and even a flagship wellness center. Kara is uniquely armed with the strength of character and will necessary to fight this evil system and heal its innocent victims. She knows first hand the depth of corruption and vast destruction caused by this elaborate and lucrative form of modern slavery. TSF’s visionary goals encompass education, prevention, investigation, rescue, rehabilitation, outreach, and survivor support. So many victims are left voiceless, silenced, and alone, by not just their abusers, but often their family, friends, and even mental health professionals. But TSF refuses to leave a survivor behind. Her true passion lies in the establishment of her visionary holistic wellness center. It will be a safe place for child victims to regain the innocence and peace that were viciously stolen from them through patient-led therapy and nature-based healing. In a matter of months Kara managed to skyrocket her social media presence, attract large platform collaborators, and establish a network of similarly aimed organizations. Her experience as the COO of private equity firm, specializing in large commercial real estate developments, lends her the depth of knowledge, adept business sense, and financial acuity to build this visionary organization from the ground up.
