Within twenty-four to forty-eight hours, they would literally tell us that they feel safe, sometimes for the first time in a long time.
We saw a significant spike in activity and we ended the month at about 1200 text messages. I feel like we can just reach a lot more people.
What I see for safe house is to continue to grow to continue to get our word out to the community to build our partnerships and take our kids to new experiences throughout our community.
I found out that there was this thing called human trafficking happening here in our county and it floored me, I had no idea that this was occurring here.
So the more I started learning about it the more interest I took in it.
From our youth in emergency shelters and intervention programs to our street outreach and our work against human trafficking.
Your contribution will help fund and support us so we can continue to support our local youth in crisis.
