V4CR Joins the Fight with NEW Digital Engagements
When our teams set up to run child sex predator stings we’re literally blown away by the thousands of depraved souls we come in contact with. This type of work can really test your faith and shake your believe in humanity. During our physical operations we train and support law enforcement to identify and engage with individuals that seek to exploit children and we film the interactions with our decoys to provide evidence for prosecution. Of the thousands of contacts we receive in an operation only a small percentage of these predators ever show up to claim their handcuffs… and we think that’s a shame.
Our solution: enhanced digital engagements that cast a wider net and create a non permissive environment for pedophiles on sites and in apps. We have thousands of phone numbers and interactions captured through dozens of online sites and applications that we can now act on. With our new capabilities we intend to shine the light on those that prey on children and break the law. In the next few months you’ll learn the full extent of how we are engaging with online traffickers as we ramp up capabilities. For now just know that we’re America’s Veterans, we’ve joined the fight against sex trafficking and child exploitation and we’re just getting started.
Contraland Film Update
During the filming of the documentary we’ve met survivors, advocates, experts and organizations that have helped us tell the story of child trafficking in the United States. This month we met with Grace Tang, Founder of Keepsakes of Triumph who is in fact a survivor of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking and now an advocate and community leader in the fight to end child slavery. Her story is unique and intriguing and we’re happy to call her among our friends in this fight. She has also helped Vets For Child Rescue with aftercare support and recovery services for the recent child victim that V4CR recovered.

Please Support the V4CR Aftercare and Recovery Fund
The rescue is just the beginning so we’ve set up an Aftercare and Recovery Fund to facilitate the many aspects that a child will need to begin the healing journey. We work with social services and other NGOs to a wide array of services that recognize the unique trauma victims have experienced. In order to rebuild their lives, survivors may be in immediate need of housing, counseling, medical care, legal advocacy, job training, education, substance abuse and addiction recovery services.
