About Us

At the Buyer Rehabilitation Project, we take a unique approach to addressing the human trafficking problem: curbing demand. 

The Buyer Rehabilitation Project is a Christian Non-Profit organization in Tampa, Florida whose mission is threefold:


  • Advertise and network through the legal community, law enforcement, churches, and other organizations to find sex buyers who want to get well.

  • Subsidize, customize, and guide their healing journeys to include faith-based advice, group therapy, individual counseling, and a variety of recovery programs as necessary to gain sobriety.

  • Finally, as a result of their strengthened relationship with Jesus Christ and the connection to and mentorship from other similarly affected men, help them achieve life-long freedom from their sexual bondage, and in so doing, erase their future sex buying activity from the face of the earth.
