About Us

Mission: The Freedom Train Project is to help survivors of coercion to recreate their lives with our signature “Destinations” program, designed to assist in planning an escape, to the process of leaving, and on to the journey to healing. We utilize unique partnerships with victim advocacy agencies, law firms, law enforcement, therapy with qualified therapists, cult education, basic needs supplies, and community resources for housing and employment. The services provided are highly targeted to the needs of these survivors during their different phases of recovery.

Founders: Founders: The Freedom Train Foundation was founded by the organization’s Executive Director, Tabby Chapman, who holds a master’s degree in psychology and is a Marriage and Family Therapist and Professional Clinical Counselor. Tabby is also a former member of the group called NXIVM. The organization was also co-founded by Dr. Amber D. Gray, DBH.

Tabby saw that many people were stuck on the fence regarding leaving NXIVM because they had no resources outside of the insulated lives that had been built around them. Leaving would cause them to lose virtually everything they felt they had ever worked for including every friendship they had cultivated. Dr. Gray serves as a Board of Directors Chairperson and as the Director of Violence Prevention and Intervention on the operations side.
