A survivor rebuilds her life


A few years ago, "Camille" left her home in a southeast Asian country to work for a wealthy family, only to be trapped in terrible conditions. The family eventually moved to the U.S., bringing "Camille" with them. After more than a year, the family’s tutor called the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline to help her escape. The hotline connected "Camille" to Polaris's Client Services team, who worked closely with her to rebuild her life. After 18 months, she was approved for her T Visa, as was her immediate family. "Camille" is very excited to be reunited with her family and is making plans for her own further education. She is also saving up to get her own apartment so that she has a home to welcome her family when they arrive.
