PATH offers a variety of programming, services, and resources in their Enrichment Center to help heal women and youth who have been victims of local sex and labor trafficking. Watermark’s commitment over the next two years will allow PATH to continue reaching these victims in our very own communities. These funds will support staffing, professional counselors and therapists, and free meals that are provided weekly to clients who attend the center. Emotional and spiritual healing take place in powerful ways through the programming at PATH and often lead to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission

Education
We are dedicated to fostering communication and cooperation between local, national and international groups that work against exploitation. We engage the community in education and awareness through Awareness Nights and speaking engagements. Check out our Events page and attend an event. We offer speaking engagements upon request. Go to the Speaker Request tab for more information.

Prevention
We offer preventative services for those at risk so we can address the issue before someone is victimized. We engage the community through hosting events, advocacy, volunteerism and partnering with us. Individuals can join our Street Outreach in the City of Buffalo to provide care items and support to those in need. Go to our Volunteer page to learn more ways to get involved.

Restoration
PATH has a Survivor Support Fund for survivors to support their basic needs, vocation, housing, transportation or healing and restoration.

The PATH Enrichment Center located in the City of Buffalo offers therapeutic support services for women and children who are vulnerable, at risk or have been exploited through sex or labor trafficking. Go to the Enrichment Center tab to learn more.

PATH has a future goal of opening a safe house that is a home for women who are victims of human trafficking.

Please consider partnering with us to make a difference by giving.

Q: What is Human Trafficking?
A: Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that is growing in astounding numbers in our nation and even in our own community. Hundreds of people have been rescued from human trafficking right here in Western New York in the past few years. Tens of thousands of people are bought and sold annually in the United States alone. Children and adults of all races, cultures, ages and gender are being placed in horrifying situations involving sexual exploitation and grueling labor. For more information go to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center.
