Tim Ballard is working to end child trafficking and help the victims heal.



Tim Ballard is a former special agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security where he worked on the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and was deployed as an undercover operative for the U.S. Child Sex Tourism Jump Team. His work with child crimes led him to found Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) in 2013.

O.U.R. operates domestically in the U.S. and internationally. Their jump team of mostly former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives works to identify child trafficking rings and works with law enforcement to save these children and put the perpetrators behind bars.

The work doesn't end there - following all of their missions O.U.R. has a comprehensive aftercare program for those they rescue. They see many of the people they save from trafficking through the healing process and have been able to provide support for a better future.
