Araminta Freedom Initiative believes that it will take our entire community working together, in unity, to bring about a day when trafficking no longer exists in our state.
Our goal is to offer community based restorative survivor services utilizing our equipped volunteers and resources. In order to provide the best services, we work alongside government agencies, collaborative partners, and local church and community organizations.
As a member of the Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force, we partner with law enforcement, government agencies, and service providers who have entered into the MHTTF’s collaborative agreement to uphold core values and standards. MHTTF members use best and promising practices and rely on data and ongoing training to drive system, procedural and policy improvement. They commit to operating under a victim-centered, collaborative identification and response protocol.
We are continually exploring new partnerships. If you would like to partner with Araminta Freedom Initiative, please contact us.

Statement of Belief
Following the legacy of abolitionist Harriet Tubman, and transformational leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. and William Wilberforce, the work of Araminta is founded on God’s call to justice — articulated specifically in Isaiah 61:1, which compels us to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. Though we find strength, guidance, and encouragement in sharing a spiritual life together, we welcome partners with or without religious beliefs who share our common vision to see human dignity upheld. Grounded in the belief that every person is created in the image of God, Araminta provides assistance to survivors of trafficking and at-risk youth regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender and without expectation of participation in faith practices.
