January is declared as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. It has been a time to raise awareness and take action to combat Human Trafficking. Human Trafficking is defined, according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, as the modern-day slavery where traffickers and recruiters target vulnerable populations using force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against their will.
Human Trafficking affects every community in the United States across age, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic backgrounds. Migrant workers, at-risk, runaway and homeless youth, LBGTQA+ community, oppressed social or cultural groups, internally displaced persons or refugees affected by natural disaster or conflict, victims of physical and sexual abuse, and women, men and children living in poverty are all at higher risk of being exploited.
In order to combat and end human trafficking it will take all of us, as a community, to pull together to ensure no individual is subjected to this victimization.
YOU can take action in one or more ways to help end human trafficking!

Women, children, youth and men in crisis arrive at our shelters and offices shaken by trauma and anxious about their future. Children ask “How will Santa know where to find us?” and parents worry about how they will afford the basic necessities, let alone presents. Through the spirit of giving, you help bring joy and hope to the individuals, families and youth who come through our doors every day.
Join us in this endeavor by adopting a youth or family, or by making a monetary donation to support our services for homeless youth and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.
This year we are doing things a bit differently than before. Due to Covid-19, the safety of our participants, team and YOU are our priority and therefore we are asking that you mail or drop off Gift Cards ($100 for an adult, $50 for a child) from stores such as Walmart, Target, Food-4-Less, etc. We are committed to bringing joy, hope and safety during this difficult time!
