Abstract

Frank N Barnaba had over thirty years experience in rescuing people from sex trafficking situations. He had founded a non-profit, CORP, for that purpose several decades ago, to serve New York City and outlying areas. After being asked to concentrate on fundraising for the non-profit by the Department of Justice, with a reduced role in education, Barnaba resisted and then decided to retire from CORP in 2006. As an alternative, he and some friends co-founded a small non-profit organization, the Barnaba Institute, to educate communities and society in general about domestic human trafficking and to provide outreach and rescue services to people who wanted to escape. Barnaba's friends wanted to capture his knowledge and expertise so that others could be taught how to rescue victims of sex trafficking. This case describes the background of Frank N Barnaba; how he came to rescue runaways and prostitutes from sex trafficking; and how he started another non-profit that would suit his needs and those of the target population. The case illustrates some of the growing pains of the Barnaba Institute, including revenue generation; reliance on volunteers; and public education about domestic sex trafficking and child prostitution. The case describes the strategies being used by the organization's staff and board of directors to accomplish the organization's mission and goals. It also addresses barriers to fundraising, including public distaste for the subject of domestic sex trafficking.
