What is the Alliance’s policy for membership cancellation or refunds?
The National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance reserves the right to refuse or cancel a membership with the Alliance. If the Alliance refuses a new or renewal of membership, the Alliance will fully refund the most recent monthly membership payment.
If a new member wants to cancel their membership, the Alliance offers a full refund, less transaction fees, for up to 30 days from a new registration.
The Alliance does not give refunds for transactions that occurred more than 30 days prior to refund request. If you have a specific question about a refund, you can submit your inquiry here.
What's the benefit of being a General Member versus an Associate Member?
As a General Member you are making a commitment to a level of standards that qualifies you to have the Alliance member seal. General Members will be expected to produce documentation that they meet our minimum standards. Once a General Member has gone through our approval process, they can receive the member seal, which can be displayed on their website and marketing materials. General Members will also receive more frequent newsletters with content and resources and can share events on the Alliance website.
Once the pilot phase of Rapid Referral is over, only General Members will be receiving Rapid Referrals. This is to ensure that frontline responders can feel confident that any agency they send a candidate to will meet our minimum standards. If you have questions about this, you can contact email@example.com.
My agency is new and hasn't opened our facility yet, can I still join the Alliance?
YES! Those agencies that aren't able to meet the minimum standards of General Membership are welcome to join as Associate Members. Once you are able to meet those requirements, you can change your membership to General. The Alliance wants to support you as you work towards becoming an open and running restorative home; please feel free to contact us if you are struggling to meet these standards or if you have questions about membership.

Is the National Trafficking Sheltered Alliance a Christian organization?
The Alliance was originally built by a steering committee of Christian service providers, motivated by their faith to create a supportive community that can enhance the quality of care for survivors of human trafficking.
While the Alliance leadership and Board of Directors agree to the Alliance statement of faith, membership is open to all agencies, no matter their faith background.
